I just stumbled here today and was completely refreshed. I hooked up my stereo to the TV and bought the letterbox version of LOTM. Just after watching it at full volume (an awesome experience) I went to the computer to see what I could find, and what a pleasant surprise! I thought I was the only die-hard fan out there.

Here are three questions which could provoke some discussion (sorry if they have been brought up in the past, this is day #1 for me):

1. When Hawkeye et al are in the Cameron's Cabin, he mentions he has been trapping "west of the Cuyahoga". Is there any reference to the Cuyahoga River in the book? I can't find any.

2. Has anyone seen the Don Troiani painting "Battle at Bushy Run"? Although it involves a completely different regiment in Pennsylvania, it bears an uncanny resemblance to the George Rd Ambush.

3. Has anyone out there tried to run full speed through a eucalyptus grove - with full rifle and gear? I have. It is just about imposible. In my opinion, this is the greatest failing of the film - possibly a result of shooting in the south rather than NY.

Have a great weekend,
