Jeff Grubb's Ruminations, Comments, and Other Nonsense
|Great Art is not necessarily Great History|
|This is the only statue I know of for the Whiskey|
Rebellion. It is not where the actual fighting took
place, but rather in Washington, PA (also called
Little Washington), 20 miles south of us.
|This is a detail of a statue called "Points of View". It is on Mount Washington,|
overlooking Pittsburgh, and shows Washington meeting with a leader of the
Seneca, Guyasuta. They did not meet on this spot. The meeting happened in
1750, four years before the events that kicked off the Seven Years War. No one
really knows what they talked about. Welcome to History.
