If you visit Alexandria, VA, (where Braddock began his ill-fated trek) you can still drive down Braddock Road.
I recommend a visit to Fort Necessity (about 10 miles east of Uniontown PA) where you can see a recreation of the stockade in the Great Meadow, and also visit nearby Jumonville Glenn, and Braddock's grave.

I have not visited those sites yet, but I surely will. I have a quest to visit all the General's historic sites.
Christmas day our family follows a tradition and visits Mount Vernon as we did this year.
