Colonel George Washington, Battle On The Monongahela, 1755
Colonel George Washington was serving as a volunteer aide to General Braddock, on the ill- fated Monongahela Campaign. Although having been unwell with dysentery and suffering from Hemorrhoids, he was to perform bravely during the battle.
During the two-hour battle, the 23 year-old Colonel Washington had ridden to and fro on the battlefield, delivering the general's orders to other officers and troops. The officers had been a special target for the Indians. Of the eighty-six British and American officers, sixty-three were casualties. Washington was the only officer on horseback not shot down.
He was to have two horses shot from under him, and as the British withdrew from the battle, Washington was to organize the rear guard.
