Bushy Run Battlefield was the site of a key British victory over seven tribes of Indians in 1763. It was first memorialized in 1918, when the schoolchildren of Westmoreland County contributed one penny each—70,000 pennies in all—to buy six and a half acres and establish the battlefield as a park. Today, it’s expanded to about 250 acres, and visitors can learn about its unique place in history by walking the Edge Hill Trail.
