George Washington Crossing 1770

George Washington began a journey on October 5, 1770 to the Ohio Country to see lands he had fought to win and hoped to own. After a trip, on November 3, up the Kanawha River, the party headed back up the Ohio River. On November 17, they reached Mingo Town. Three days later their horses arrived. The party then crossed the river here and traveled on across West Virginia's northern panhandle to Fort Pitt.
