Group at Great Crossings Historical Marker, Addison, Pa.
The marker, which is decorated with an American flag, reads, "About one half mile above this point is the 'Great Crossings' of the Youghiogheny River, where George Washington crossed November 18th, 1753, when sent as envoy by Gov. Dinwiddie of Virginia to the French Commandant at Fort Le Boeuf.Washington, on his military expedition to the Ohio, encamped there with his forces, May 18th to 24th, 1754, and from that point explored the Youghiogheny.There, also, Major General Braddock, with his army, crossed June 24th, 1755, on his march against Fort Duquesne."
Eight men are pictured on either side of the lawn. The photograph looks down a pathway lined by flowers and directly at a gazebo. The garden is likely part of the property at Linden Hall in Pennsylvania.
