October 2017 

Did you know our founding father pursued two intertwined interests: military arts and western expansion.  At 16 he helped survey Shenandoah lands for Thomas, Lord Fairfax.  Commissioned a lieutenant colonel in 1754 he fought in the first skirmishes leading to the French and Indian War.  The next year, as an aide to Gen. Edward Braddock, he escaped injury, although four bullets ripped his coat and two horses were shot out from under him.
