WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MERGE
POINT OF VIEW
This bronze monument on Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington depicts a meeting in October 1770 between George Washington and Seneca leader Guyasuta. Once allies, then veterans on opposing sides in the French & Indian War, the two met 17 years later down the Ohio River and sat overnight at council fire to revisit their past and debate the future of this highly prized region. Though they held very different ideas about the fate of this area, they parted on friendly terms. Called “Point of View,” the sculpture by James A. West captures a moment in time between these two formidable men whose actions had a huge impact on Pittsburgh, Southwestern Pennsylvania and the country that would be America.

MERGING OF THREE RIVERS
Pittsburgh exists because of the confluence of the three rivers. The Allegheny River on the left and The Monongahela River on the right merge at The Point to form The Ohio River. You can find more information on these three rivers here.
