Hope you're not snow bound too much longer. Regarding your questions; Duncan didn't abandon the wounded, nor was it his responsibility (it wasn't listed in his job description, you know?) to guide wounded soldiers from whence they came. His primary duty was to continue to Fort William Henry and escort the daughters of Col. Munro (dogs/bitches according to Cherokee Wes!) in the process. There were other soldiers present after the ambush to aid the retreat of the wounded. Duncan was duty bound to press on.
As for the canoes; the real Fort William Henry sits on the shore of New York's Lake George. That is the lake they were supposed to be upon. The actual lake where the scene was filmed is Lake James, though the waterfalls were filmed at Linville Falls. They did shoot elsewhere, but it didn't make the final editing. Of course, for more on the filming locations you can purchase "On the Trail of the Last of the Mohicans". Yes, from us.............
