"Fort Ligonier Attacked!"

Our Speaker will be Spencer Pfrogner.

Spencer will tell us the details of the Attack. 

      

This is what starts it all,” says Spencer Pfrogner...

In September 1758, about halfway through the French and Indian War, the 8-acre historic site was home to 5,000 British-American soldiers, led by Gen. John Forbes.

Their goal: overtake the French Fort Duquesne, located 50 miles west at the intersection of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers.


Please Note: Spencer Pfrogner has many YouTube Videos with Historical Subjects:
