This stamp commemorates the 175th anniversary of the Battle of Braddock’s Field.
 
During the struggle of the British to free the Northwestern Territory from French occupation (French and Indian War), General George Braddock ignored the advice of George Washington about Indian methods of fighting from ambush.  At the Battle of Braddock, British troops were scared by war whoops and confused by Indians fighting from behind trees.  General Braddock was killed and his troops defeated.
 
The battle featured several commanders besides Washington who would become prominent in the American Revolution: General Thomas Gage went on to become the British Commander-in-Chief at the beginning of the Revolution, Horatio Gates was a Colonial Army general who commanded American forces at the Battle of Saratoga, and Charles Lee became a major general in the Colonial Army.
