    Why would Braddock bury the gold to pay his troops in Virginia when his eventual objective (after Ft. Duquesne and Ft. Niagara) was at Crown Point, in the vicinity of Lake Champlain? How was he to pay his troops after that long march? This clip further muddies the waters of the story of Braddock’s lost pay chest.

    this happen in PA during the attack on fort duquense. Rumor here is he buried the gold to make sure his troops wouldnt run off after being paid.

    And its near rt 40 where is was buried in the middle of the road (braddock) that is, yet Charles lee and other confederates Washington would later battle a few years later was with this army…

    Braddock, Washington, Boone,Gage,Lee and Gates was all at this battle, Lee could had taken the gold.

    Heard this story as a kid in Fairfax County in the 1960s. I looked in several creek beds in the Annandale and Alexandria boundary streams on Indian Creek and Turkey Run and other smaller side tributaries. Low and behold I found an old box of 3-band musket balls/bullets, union civil war era not revolutionary era munitions. About 80 to 100 bullets, still packed tightly together, even though the box was very much deteriorated. I still have them but never did find the cannons.

    Well we can debate the issue of an ambush, since that historically just doesn’t seem to be the case, but more importantly we all sometimes forget that good ole’ GW survived this debacle, made it home and seemed to do pretty well for himself. It’s not like Centreville wasn’t on his way? $30k in 1755, you could buy a lot of land, position and prestige with that kind of cash!
