Behind the Art: Fort Ligonier work depicts George Washington's 'friendly fire incident'

Chas Fagan’s 2019 painting, “Flash Point,” in the George Washington Gallery at Fort Ligonier, depicts Washington’s French and Indian War “Friendly Fire Incident.”

Among pivotal French and Indian War dates is Nov. 12, 1758, when a raiding party of French troops from Fort Duquesne and their Native American allies went to filch livestock from the Post at Loyalhanna, later rechristened Fort Ligonier.
