Picture kind of big to see, but from your first post on this, it's a great find.
Any possible link to Braddock possible? Hope so, would love to hear of it's
link by age to his campaign. Like I posted earlier, his last camp before the
battle was supposed to be approx. one mile from my home. There was a
historic marker for years near the McKeesport- White Oak line stating this.
In fact, a small road near there is still called Camp St. due to this historic
fact. The road goes from this area toward the Monongahela River where the party made the first crossing in present day McKeesport. Nice display on Braddock's battle at the refurbished Carnegie Library in Braddock, Pa. Have done work there installing 1800's style wrought iron fencing for theLibrary. Waiting for more info, will stay tuned.

It is another campsite before he is in white oak area.
You got to figure there is many of these campsites around from Braddock's expedition. Plus theses camps were spread some times over a mile or so. You figure the amount in the expedition! I have detected 4 different ones through the years. Through the years I have found few nice relics from Braddock's Campsites; from Braddock's Defeat to the State Of Maryland. I wish you well and good luck in your adventures in White Oak! I know there has to be some artifacts left there that progress did not take.
Here is an Belt Pole Axe you might find there! This one was found near Maryland!..I hope this gives you inspiration to check out the Whit Oak campsite!
