General Edward Braddock’s 1755 expedition to capture Fort Duquesne was attacked, killing or wounding 900 men, in what is now known as the Battle of the Monongahela. Rumor has it that on the anniversary of Braddock’s departure near the bridge or along the nearby bluffs, the ghostly sounds of military orders, horse hooves, marching, and metal-on-metal clanking ring out.
