    Grant’s Defeat

    In 1758, great preparations were made by the English for the reduction of the French posts. In July, an army of 7,000 men, under General John Forbes, left Carlisle, Pennsylvania, destined for the reduction of Fort Duquesne. About the middle of September, the advanced guard, under Colonel Henry Boquet, having reached Loyalhanna, Pennsylvania, dispatched Major James Grant to reconnoiter, with 800 Highland Scotch and 200 Virginians, under Major Andrew Lewis, who subsequently commanded at the bloody Battle of Point Pleasant in present-day West Virginia.
