Very interesting book about how the Indian tribes, helped Washington and the British, defeat the French, then helped defeat the British, a number of years later, in the American Revolution.

The history of this continent is a history of wars, just like the others.

The indian tribes were treated very badly by the first americans.

Did their best, to get the tribes off their land, that they had used, for many years.

Interesting to read about Washington, and how he obtained land, in that time period.

Anyway, learning a number things about Washington, that i did not know.

Have you read any history of the Mayflower expedition? Nathaniel Philbrick wrote s good one. Our thanksgiving legend is not exactly accurate.
