Pontiac's Rebellion @ 250

This year marks the 250th anniversary of Pontiac's Rebellion at the end of the French and Indian War. Here in West Virginia's Greenbrier Valley, white settlement was nearly wiped clean by Cornstalk and his raiders, and it took years for settlement to begin to trickle back into the valley.

Further north in the old Monongalia country, Ft. Pitt was besieged and held, likely saving the area for white settlement. Otherwise, the Indians would have probably pushed settlement back across the continental divide.

The state of WV is offering a series of talks at some of our state parks this year in relation to Cornstalk's role in the rebellion. Are any other states doing something similar?

Had it not been for Fort Pitt and Fort Detroit holding out, Pontiac would have run the table, taking all of the British frontier forts and making it more difficult for the British to regain the region.
