Return to the French and Indian War

Alistair Flush, Military Historian

Listen up. I told you before that I would return a bit to the French and Indian War. Remember that George Washington gained military experience from this war. It is important to note that the Battle of the Great Meadows was the only battle in history where George Washington surrendered.

Washington commanded 400 troops and built Fort Necessity during this early battle.  After a day of attempted defense, he surrendered on July 4, 1754. Yes, July 4. What did this experience of surrender teach Washington? In the Revolutionary War he faced disastrous circumstances and refused to surrender. History is always connected.
