General Edward Braddock arrived from England in 1755, and along with Washington, attacked Fort Duquesne.
However, Braddock was used to fighting European style (Each soldier in bright red coat, standing in a straight line, marching in an open field up to the enemy, and then firing.)
Unfortunately, for him, the French and Indians did not fight this way and he did not listen to Benjamin Franklin's warning.. What happened when Braddock made his way to Fort Duquesne?
As Braddock's force neared Fort Duquesne in early July, it was ambushed by French troops and their Native American allies. More than half of Braddock's men were killed or wounded. Braddock was killed.
