Monongahela 1755

Another interesting reconstruction. I make no apologies for all these clips - I am old enough to remember life before the internet and the availability of these on demand is something I treasure. For a French sympathiser - as I am in the F&I - this is one of the best battles to learn and read sbout - a classic ambush by a numerically inferior force. This sequence depicts among other things Beaujeu painting himself black before the battle.
