Major Washington at Fort LeBoeuf, 1753. Tension between England and
France has been building, and so the Government of Virginia sends an
enthusiastic twenty-one year old, Major George Washington, to deliver a
polite but forceful request to the French to leave the Ohio Valley.
After a hard and frigid journey, the young Major reaches his
destination. With the confidence of youth he presents the English
request to the French commander at Ft. LeBoeuf. The French officers, in
this print, are gathered to translate the virtues of both the message
and the messenger. As the two nations begin the contest of dominion,
shadows of the third nation are looming ominously in both this doorway
and in both nations’ futures.
