Rich & List,
This one is good and it was done in conjunction with reenactors who are friends of mine and were involved in the Legends of the Old Northwest for those of you who may have seen that series last year and since on reruns. One of those shows dealt with Rogers' Rangers, the others with Pontiac's Rebellion, Tecumseh and one other that escapes me at the moment.
