Indian Fighters: Forgotten War - PBS Documentary

Native American warfare was an important part of the French and Indian War. Two colonists, the Amercian born Robert Rogers and his Canadian born French nemesis Langi de Montegron became important backwoods fighters who were skilled at Indian warfare techniques. Rogers' many exploits were made famous in Colonial newspapers and were personified in LAST OF THE MOHICANS. But the little know Langi was a powerful adversary who bested Rogers at every meeting. A skilled self promoter, Rogers wrote a manual for wilderness fighting, and is still revered as the father of the Green Beret and American Special Forces. Langi deserves more recognition and this documentary helps tell his story.

 FORGOTTEN WAR: Native Nations and Cultural Mix

A clip from the PBS documentary FORGOTTEN WAR: The Struggle for North America. For thousands of years native peoples occupied the eastern woodlands. In 1755, at the start of the French and Indian War, native nations had over 150 years of contact with Europeans. Indians played the French against the British as a way of controlling of vast territories, stretching from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The cultural mix was remarkable. For example, two white captives were adopted by the Abenakis and their white son grew up to be the blonde, blue-eyed chief of the Abenakis - the main allies of the French and the tribe most feared in the New England colonies.

FORGOTTEN WAR: The Struggle for North Amercia

A documentary about the French and Indian War. Two European empires -- and the Native Nations of the eastern woodlands tribes -- struggle for control of the vast North American continent. These cultures cross in forgotten ways. Indians adopt whites, Europeans intermarry with Natives, and all are dependent on trade with each other. Colonists born in New England and New France (Canada) are tied to the British and French crowns, but are becoming independent in ways that will cause a major shift away from European dominance. This fascinating mix of cultures is the setting for the French and Indian War. A war that determines the fate of North America, and becomes the prelude to the Revolution of 1776.
