The Battle of Point Pleasant to the Treaty of Camp Charlotte

Join the Fort Pitt Museum to commemorate the 245th Anniversary of the Battle of Point Pleasant and the end of Lord Dunmore’s War with guest speaker Dr. Glenn Williams.

After a brief discussion of the causes and course of this last conflict of America’s colonial era, Williams’ talk will examine the decisive battle and diplomatic conclusion of Dunmore’s War. He will pay special attention to the role of Fort Pitt, the engagement known as the Battle of Point Pleasant, the military stand-off at Pickaway Plains, and the Treaty of Camp Charlotte that brought the war to an end, as well as the surprisingly lenient peace terms.
