Program features include:

  • Sites to be explored include Fort Ligonier, Fort Duquesne, Fort Pitt and Daniel Boone Homestead
  • International effects of the French and Indian War on the colonies
  • Important figures from this time period, including George Washington, Anthony Wayne, Daniel Boone, and General Edward Braddock
  • Westward expansion and conflicts between colonials and Native Americans
  • Role of trade and environmental resources
