Contents: This book chronicles the history of Pennsylvania's Old Glade Road which was completed in 1758 and became the great military route from the Atlantic seaboard to Ohio. Throughout the Revolutionary War it was the main thoroughfare over which the western forts received ammunition and supplies. In the dark days of the last decade of the 18th century when the Kentucky and Ohio pioneers were fighting for the foothold they had obtained in the West this road played a vital part in moving men and material. Illustrated with four fold-out maps.
