Tom, I assure you that I understand that LOM is a work of fiction, based loosely on some events of the time with a few actual historical figures thrown in. I merely agree with Myrrh that the *film* hints at Montcalm's possible conspiracy with the Hurons. And I have read enough of what you term "revisionist history" to know that some scholars are still questioning his role. I don't think for one moment that the purpose of LOM was other than to entertain & to give us an idea of what life, in general, might have been like in 1757.
