What happened at the forks of the Ohio between 1750 and 1760 profoundly affected the course of world history. This book tells the story of two frontier forts, Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt, and their part in the epic struggle between England and France for mastery of North America during the French and Indian Wars. A young George Washington was one of the principle actors in this dramatic struggle. It was Washington who delivered the ultimatum, sent by Gov. Dinwiddie of the Virginia colony instructing the French to withdraw from the Ohio country. The French answer was to build Fort Duquesne (now Pittsburgh). An epilogue describes the city of Pittsburgh and the book is illustrated with portraits, plans of Fort Pitt and Fort Duquesne, battle plans and historical maps.
