Fort Necessity National Battlefield

Before I tell you anything about this photo, I wanted to say that I posted this picture for Randy.  Randy is a co-worker who enjoys reenactments like this….so here’s to you Randy.


I took this picture about a week ago at Fort Necessity National Battlefield in Fayette County Pennsylvania.  This is part of the U.S. National Park Service and preserves the battlefield.  This battle (July 3, 1754) was early in the French and Indian War, and resulted in the surrender of British Colonial forces under the command of Colonel George Washington….. a first of many losses for a young George.


This young WVU student volunteer put on a musket demonstration and as you can see I captured the moment.
