Description

FORGOTTEN WAR: Struggle for North America tells the little-known story of how the native people of North America controlled the outcome of this war that defined our history as a nation and a people. This one-hour special taps an international panel of experts to dig beneath the familiar history, and shed new light on the multi-cultural blend of natives, Europeans, and Africans that was the North America of the 1750’s. We follow the fate of the Abenaki people—one of the most influential Indian nations in early American history; and we examine the realities behind the myth of Robert Rogers and his legendary Rangers—the frontier partisans who gained heroic status in this brutal war.
