The Braddock Expedition and Fox’s Gap in Maryland - Curtis L. Older. One result of the French and Indian War was supremacy over the North American continent for the English and the largest land transfer in the history of the world. The French and Indian War provided military training to the men who would lead both the American and British forces in the American Revolution. It was a struggle with worldwide implications. One of the most important chapters in this struggle was…the Braddock Expedition. The role of Maryland and Fox's Gap in the Braddock Expedition has become lost to both visitor and area residents. Indeed, many a hiker on the Appalachian Trail has come to Fox's Gap unaware of its long history. It is the history of the American journey, from early settlers and founding fathers, to the agony of civil strife and reconstruction. It is this history the author seeks to preserve.
