Major Washington at Fort LeBoeuf,
As tension between England and France builds, the Government of
Virginia sends an enthusiastic 21 year old officer to deliver a
polite but forceful request to the French to leave the Ohio Valley.
After a cold and arduous journey, the young officer reaches his
destination. With the confidence of youth he presents the English
request to the French commander at Ft. LeBoeuf. French officers
gather and translate virtues of both the message and the messenger,
Major George Washington. As the two nations begin the contest of
dominion, shadows of the third nation loom ominously in the doorway.
