The Fall of Fort Duquesne, 1758: A Hidden History

The longer you live in Pittsburgh, the more you realize every street, school and park is probably named after something or someone involved in a war. The Battle of Fort Duquesne, part of the French and Indian war, involved a Forbes, a Bouquet and a Grant. The Fort Pitt Museum will hold The Fall of Fort Duquesne, 1758: A Hidden History, a lecture by author Fred Anderson on how Native tribes helped win the battle for the British. Spoiler alert: it’s called hidden history because, unsurprisingly, the Native American history of this battle was brushed over.
