George Washington was a col at age 22 and was a bit rash to the forts of Ohio. Takes off to look for the French. Lay an ambush for the French. Coulon De Jumonville is the commander of the French party that was ambushed by Washington. Washington and his men retreat to Ft. Necessity. Probably the worst place to pick a fort. Coulon de Villiers is a more professional and more equipped officer who is the brother of Jumonville. Washington neither spoke nor read French. France gave them very generous terms for surrender. Washington had to sign that he was L’assassin of Jumonville. Marches out July 4 th , 1754 after surrendering and admitting he assassinated an English gentleman. England sends Edward Braddock with 1500 men, 2500 total vs 300 French and 600 Indians. Braddock was contemptuous of Indians and didn’t think Indians could have any impact on well disciplined and lined up English troops. Torturous march. Indians didn’t succeed in setting up their ambush. They run into each other head on.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
