The Crossing by Robert Griffing

 
 

(2nd Braddock Series Print)

At 11:00 am on July 9, 1755, General Braddock's army reached the second ford of the Monongahela. Braddock, on his bay horse with his aides Washington (in blue) and Orme on either side, accompanied by bodyguards were set to observe the crossing. On the far side of the river where John Fraser's cabin lay charred, workers were busy making the slope possible for the main body of the army to cross. With drums beating and fifes playing, the Redcoats of Sir Peter Halket's Forty-Fourth crossed the river at 1:00 pm with the rest to follow closely. At 2:00 pm, the bulk of the army had reached the northern shore and began their trek towards Duquesne.

Of the 1460 souls, officers and privates who went into the combat, 877 were casualties. Of 89 commissioned officers, 63 were killed or wounded, not one field officer escaped unhurt. Braddock would die of his wounds three days later and back on the field laid the bodies of Sir Peter Halket and his son, James.
