Treaty of Fort Pitt: 240th Anniversary Commemoration
Commemorate the 240th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Fort Pitt with living historians that will include members of the Delaware Tribe of Indians.
Fort Pitt, a strategic military outpost built in 1759, hosted many treaties between the colonial government and native people living in what was then known as the Ohio Country in the 18th century. One of these treaties, the 1778 Treaty of Fort Pitt, was the first official treaty between the newly-formed United States of America and any American Indian nation.
