Outposts Of The War For Empire
The French And English In Western Pennsylvania
Charles Morse Stotz was an architect first and historian second, which makes his history of the frontier forts of Western Pennsylvania particularly valuable. . . . Stotz combines his considerable knowledge of how forts were built to paint a vivid picture of the hardships, logistical nightmares and physical dangers involved in building and maintaining a safe place in the 18th century Western Pennsylvania wilderness. . . . It is 'must' reading for anyone whose interest in Pittsburgh's earliest history goes beyond popular stereotypes and truisms.
