Description:

Fort Necessity, where George Washington was engaged in his first major battle as a soldier, was established as a National Battlefield Site by Act of Congress 1931. This site consists of two acres in a marshy tract known as the Great Meadows, a treeless area varying from 100 to 300 yards in width and almost a mile in length. It is located 11 miles east of Uniontown, Pa. The surrounding Great Meadows and adjoining forested hills are a Pennsylvania State Recreational Park. The most interesting feature of the battlefield site is a stockade reproduced by popular subscription in commemoration of the Fort Necessity of the French and Indian War
