I attended a national genealogy conference in Pittsburgh about 2001, give or take a year or two. After the conference, I rented a car and drove to nearby Uniontown to research my Faucett and Crousore ancestors. The research was not terribly successful. I still had a couple of days left before flying back to FL.
Those days were spent visiting a few French and Indian War sites: Fort Necessity, the site of Braddock's Defeat and a couple of others. It was a very informative trip. I learned quite a bit about Washington's early military career.
