: In the movie Col. Munro's heart was cut out by Mangua. Did this happen in real life. Where can I find a biography on the net, regarding Munro?
No, Monro/Munro's death did not occur as depicted in the movie. Magua was not an actual person.
" On November 3, 1757, just three months after the fall of Fort William Henry, Monro died suddenly. According to one source "he was stricken with apoplexy in the street." The Reverend John Ogilvie recorded that Col. Monro "departed this Life suddenly" and on the 4th of November he "was decently buried in ye Church." ( St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Albany, New York.)"
This quote comes from our own biography on Col. Monro. You can read it by using the link below.
