The French and Indian War in Pennsylvania, 1749-1758

Join Lynn Otto as he discusses the beginning of “The First World War in Pennsylvania.” Many historians consider the French and Indian War to be the First World War because it was truly a global war and not fought just in the colonies. The presentation will feature the early struggles and defeats and finally the Redemption at the Forks of the Ohio. Mr. Otto has been a reenactor for over 30 years and has served on the Board of Directors for the Friends of Conrad Weiser.
