1763 a town of several hundred civilains had slowly grown up around
Fort Pitt. In the spring of that year the bloody conflict known
as Ponticac's war swept down the Allegheny. Fort Pitt had sustained
heavy damage just a few weeks earlier from spring flooding. The
Ohio valley warriors kept a constant fire on the fort and sealed
it off from any relief that long hot summer. In this painting we
see the warriors of the Ohio valley on the morning of August 1st
as a runner brings word of Bouquet's advancing army. Four days later,
these same warriors would face Bouquet's forces at the infamous
Battle of Bushy Run.
