This tablet marks the site of General Edward Braddock's fourteenth encampment or bivouac. Here Braddock's army spent the night July 1, 1755 having marched five miles from their camp on the east side of the Youghiogheny near Connellsville. The army halted here a day until a swamp was bridged or corduroyed. The next day they marched only one mile to "Jacob's Cabin Camp" where more bridging of the swamp was necessary.

This Tablet is erected to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of George Washington
