Welcome to the official website of author Jason A. Cherry.  Take a moment to browse my site and learn more about one of the founding fathers of Pittsburgh, William Trent,who helped shape the early age of America we know today by constructing the first outpost at the Forks of the Ohio in Spring of 1754.


A Bit About Me

When I was ten years old, my parents took my brother and I to our first living history French and Indian War event at Fort Frederick and I was captivated from the beginning.  It was there in 1990 that I was introduced to the world of Captain William Trent and the rest they say is truly History.  With the recent announcement of my book, I look to finally tell the world the untold story of Pittsburgh's lost outpost.
