70

The other day, on August 1st, about 7,000 men were mustered to Braddock’s Field, outside of Pittsburg. They were going to march on the town, but moderates negotiated with them and delayed them for long enough that the destructive fervor was abated by the time they ended up marching. However, a few houses were still looted and a barn belonging to John Neville’s son was burnt down.
