A Warning For General Braddock

 
     
 

A Warning For General Braddock by Robert Griffing

 
 

(1st Braddock Series Print)

At Midday June 26, 1755, General Braddock's scouts and guides working in advance of the main column, happened upon a site that was occupied the night before by 150 to 200 French and Indians. The following two accounts recorded by Captain Orme and an unknown British officer tell of the tree taunts observed there.

"They (The Indians) had Stripped and painted some trees, upon which they and the French had written many threats and bravados with all kinds of scurrilous language." - Captain Orme

"They had drawn many odd figures on ye trees expressing with red paint. Ye scalps and prisoners they had taken with them." - Unknown British Officer

(Taken from "Braddock's Defeat", by Charles Hamilton.)
