About this title


The Northwestern Pennsylvania wilderness was once the scene of many events that had great significance on the history of Pennsylvania and the nation. Here it was that the legions of France buried their leaden plates, erected their forts and staked out a claim to the continent of North America. It was also here that the red-coated agents of England resisted the French bid for empire. Across this trackless wilderness there trekked as the agent of Virginia, to warn the French from the Ohio Valley, none other than the young George Washington. This journey to Fort Le Beouf was his first public service and the launching of a career culminating with his services in the founding of our republic. All of these things and many more of equal importance took place in Northwestern Pennsylvania. The deficiency of Pennsylvania historical literature and research, however, regarding these important events in such a critical time period in our early history in this section of Pennsylvania had long been recognized. With all of this in mind, the Pennsylvania Historical Commission, under the guidance of noted historians Stevens and Kent, embarked upon sponsorship of a WPA project to carry on a program of archeological and historical research in NW PA. They spearheaded the project of assembling all the new materials gathered for the Wilderness Chronicles of Northwestern Pennsylvania. Drawing upon archival work, the Pa. Historical Commission originally published this excellent selection of key documents and correspondence relating primarily to the exciting events and military actions between Indians, British, French and Provincial forces in the mid 1700 s.
Wilderness Chronicles is a selection of primary sources describing these events and gives much credible evidence on the region s connection to the making of America. This book was originally published in 1941 and was not meant as a history of the region but rather a collection of raw materials from which the history was written. Wilderness Chronicles is still today, 60 years after its original publication, the definitive source of primary material from this Upper Ohio Valley wilderness that a new republic had its roots and a new nation was founded, The United States of America. One of the most complete collections of key documents and correspondence relating to the French and Indian War and Pontiac s War available to the public.
Excellent collection of early French/British/F&I materials found nowhere else
