A Charming Field for an Encounter -
Fort Necessity July 3, 1754
by Robert Griffing

 
   
 

 

Late in the morning of July 3rd, a gentry's musket signaled the arrival of the French and Indian force led by Captain Louis Coulon de Villiers, brother of slain Jumonville. "We immediately called our men to arms", warned George Washingtron and Captain James Mackay later wrote, "and drew up in order before our trenches." The French and Canadians, according to one participants, skirted the south side of the meadow while the Indians, "shouting the war cry," advanced along the north.

Having moved forward with Captain Mackay and the South Carolina Independent Company (the depiction here), Washington was left exposed to the French fire and forced to retreat to the fort when the Virginians scurried back into their trenches.
