British Territory on American Soil

Did anyone know that the grave site of General Edward Braddock, which is located in Farmington, Pennsylvania, is by law British Territory?  Braddock died July 13, 1755 during the ill-fated Braddock Expedition.

I think this may be a local story for the benefit of the tourist trade. There is no mention of this plot listed by the British War Graves Commision.
