THE BATTLE OF BUSHY RUN

THE BATTLE OF BUSHY RUN

 

This 1963 reprint of C. M. Bombergers monograph first published in 1920 is a highly detailed and thoroughly-researched account of the Battle of Bushy Run of the French and Indian War in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. The author stresses the importance of this pivotal time in early colonial days west of the Appalachians and calls this battle the most decisive victory in all history gained by the White Man over the American Indian. Black and white portraits of Colonel Henry Boquet and Chief Pontiac are included in this 67-page book that is now out-of-print and very hard to find. A limited number of copies are available through The Westmoreland County Historical Society.
