In this episode we follow the trials and tribulations of General Edward Braddock. After George Washington's debacle at Fort Necessity, King George II and his cabinet sent two regiments of British soldiers to North America to boot the French out of their fort. Unfortunately, General Braddock met his match just short of his objective - the forks of the Ohio and it cost him his life. Join us in our continuing exploration of American Military History.
