"Braddock's Defeat establishes ... the battle's profoundly pivotal nature for Indian, French Canadian, and British peoples in the eighteenth century. The disaster altered the balance of power in America and escalated the fighting into a global conflict known as the Seven Years' War. Those who were there, including George Washington, Thomas Gage, Horatio Gates, Charles Lee, and Daniel Morgan, never forgot its lessons and brought them to bear when they fought again - whether as enemies or allies - two decades hence. The camapaign had awakened many British Americans to their provincial status in the empire, spawing ideas of American identity and anticipating the social and political divisions that would erupt in the American Revolution."--Jacket.
