Originally published to commemorate the bicentennial of Pittsburgh's founding, Drums in the Forest is reissued to mark the 250th anniversary of the French and Indian War. It comprises two parts: the first, by Alfred Proctor James, provides the historical background leading up to the capture of Fort Duquesne by the British; the second, by Charles Morse Stotz, is a description of the five forts built at the forks of the Ohio between 1754 and 1815.

From the Back Cover:

"[Professor James's] treatment is encyclopedic; few events in American colonial history are omitted. Moreover, since Pittsburgh was caught up in international power politics, he analyzes in detail the great William Pitt's 'system' for the defeat of the French, but always with the intent of showing the effect of these global plans on the Pittsburgh area. . . . Mr. Stotz describes the area's forts, using words and drawings with equal facility, and makes a permanent contribution to the history of military architecture. . . . His work illuminates the whole history of military fortifications in the eighteenth century."--Mississippi Valley Historical Review

About the Author:

Dr. Alfred Procter James was professor emeritus of history, University of Pittsburgh, and author of Writings of General John Forbes and The Ohio Company--Its Inner History.  

Charles Morse Stotz was a practicing architect in Pittsburgh and one of the country's foremost experts on the design of colonial forts.  His published works include The Early Architecture of Western Pennsylvania and Outposts of the War for Empire.
