>From a recent news release: "“Clash of Empires: The British, French
and Indian War, 1754-1763” opens at the Smithsonian’s International
Gallery Friday, Dec. 15. The exhibition explores the three-sided
struggle for the possession of North America by the British, French
and American Indians and its worldwide effects. The Senator John
Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center organized this exhibition

War Museum/Museum of Civilization. “Clash of Empires” is on view

number of national awards, including an award of merit from the
American Association for State and Local History."

lifetime opportunity to see such a rare and historically important
group of artifacts.  Oh yeah, there are also things like the original
Fort Necessity surrender document signed by George Washington on July
3,1754.
