One question I've always had about LOTM, in paticular the seige of Fort William Henry, was/is where were Rogers' Rangers?
Historically there should've been a handful of Rangers somewhere within the fort. As a matter of fact, when the Indian Allies of the French got drunk & started killing Britishers, they even dug up some of the recent dead & scalped them, including Robert Rogers younger brother, Richard!
They paid for this later, as a number of the dead [including Richard Rogers] had been victims of smallpox, thus these Indians later carried the disease back to their villages.
Anyhow, I always thought that a couple extras in the fort should've been dressed in the green coats of Rogers' Rangers.
