Fort Necessity National Battlefield

The battle at Fort Necessity in the summer of 1754 was the opening action of the French and Indian War. The park consists of three units: the main unit which includes the battlefield, the reconstructed fort and earth work, Mount Washington Tavern, and the visitor center; the Braddock grave unit, one mile west; and the Jumonville Glen unit, seven miles west.
