PITTSBURGH - May 20, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Pittsburgh's Lost Outpost: Captain Trent's Fort

Local author Jason A. Cherry will be available to sign copies of book


As 1753 came to a close, European empires were set on a collision course for a triangular piece of land known as the Forks of the Ohio at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers.

The navigable waterways were valuable to the French to complete their control of the Ohio Valley as the British looked to create a center for their booming fur trade and westward expansion.

Former soldier turned trader William Trent set out for the untamed wilderness to stake Britain's claim. He would build the first fort to form the humble beginnings of Pittsburgh and set the staging ground for the French and Indian War.

Author Jason A. Cherry details the history of William Trent and Pittsburgh's forgotten first outpost.

About the Author:

Jason A. Cherry has lived in Western Pennsylvania his entire life and has interpreted the French and Indian War for almost thirty years. He resides in Butler, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the Ohio country with his wife, Emily, and his two daughters, Penny and Charlotte.
