Attack On Fort Necessity
Ohh no I have no way out and all my gunpowder is wet so I have no way to defend my self.

(translated to English) When you sign these papers you will be admitting that you killed Jumonville.
Jumonville was a French diplomat. The Seneca chief talked Gorge Washington into attacking the French. Jumonville got wounded and was laying on the ground. The Seneca chife then killed him.
Inexperiance Of Gorge Washinton
This is a perfect place to settle and build a colony.
Gorge Washington built a fort in the meadows. Their fort was in the middle of the forest surrounded by trees. The French then attacked the English from behind the trees leaving the English with no escape. Washingtons gunpowder was useless because his fort got flooded. He was surrounded with no way of defending himself and he had no way out.
We are Native Americans here to help you fight the English colonist.
Thank you we will need all the help we can get.
The French offered Gorge Washington a chance to surrender at fort necessity. Washinton sent his best translator. (The translator new little french and spoke Dutch.) Not knowing that the document said that he had killed Jumonville Gorge signed the document.
Gorge Washington had many mistakes building the fort in the middle of the woods. He was also taken advantage of by the Seneca chief. His biggest mistake by far was sighing a document that he had no idea what is said.
Gorge this isnt a good place to settle were in the middle of a forest.
King Gorge the II had to send troops to help clean up what Gorge Washington did. General Braddock wasn't very nice to the Native Americans. The native Americans even offered to help the English fight the French. Many Native Americans started to join the French to fight against the British. This rivalry over trade and land led to the French and Indian war which lasted seven years.
