After the American Revolution, General George Washington took a trip out west to inspect land he received for his service to the country, land that was located in Appalachian Pennsylvania. And when he got there, he encountered a group of Scots-Irish squatters who had planted a small community there, without his permission. And that set the stage for a dispute.
Today on Stories, Steve and Rod tell the story of George Washington’s Appalachian land. Thanks for listening.
