Fort Bedford – June 1758

Fort Bedford was built during the French and Indian War and is located at the present site of Bedford, Pennsylvania. It was constructed by British troops under the command of Colonel Henry Bouquet by order of General John Forbes. The fort was one of a string of British forts and blockhouses designed to protect British supply lines on the Forbes Road, a pioneer trail built by the British during their invasion of the Ohio Country and campaign against the French garrison at Fort Duquesne, modern day Pittsburgh.
