: Hi, Kathy...actually, I think Hawkeye's line is given in response to Duncan's "How is it you are headed west?" and Hawkeye responds something like "We just face north & real sudden-like, turn left." In other words, that's how you head west. Yes, the soldiers on the road look dead, but apparently they only lost 17 or 18...I forget. Duncan comments on the number that were killed when reporting to Munro. Maybe we just didn't get to see the wounded straggling about, wondering what to do.
: Ann, I'm curious as to which line struck you as being so ironic?
: Do tell!
You've probably read my answer to Kathy re the line by now, Marcia.
I'm curious as to why the state of No. Carolina didn't keep the fort in tact rather than dismantle it. Seems like a waste to me. Surely there was some historical value to it as a reproduction of a stockade fort. I know there are civil war forts in NC, because we vacation 1/2 mile down the beach from one.
Russell Means homepage really confused me. It's not easy to be politically correct these days:o) He complained that the term "native american" is not as appropriate as "american Indian". He said he prefers "American Indian." I wish JC would answer this one for me, since he has a native/Indian? ancestor....ann
