British Territory on American Soil
« on: 16/02/2009 02:57:51 »
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.
If brains were made of dynamite, I wouldn't have enough to blow my nose.
