Thanks kopfjaeger, it looks interesting; kind of similar to the craziness going on in the Carolina back-country in about the same time.

Gottlieb,

It really is a good movie. I specially like it because it's from where I live, Southwestern Pennsylvania. The movie Unconquered is another excellent movie about Southwestern Pennsylvania back in 1763.

Bushy Run state park where the battle of Bushy Run took place in Pontiac's Rebellion on August 1763 is a half a mile from my house, and the battle was mentioned in the movie ( Unconquered ).

They have a reenactment every year the first weekend of August, lots of vendors, a gift shop and museum, a couple blacksmiths making things, a food court, and Native Americans, British and American soldiers running around. It's a good time.

I watched Many Rivers To Cross ( 1955 ) Robert Taylor, and Big Sky ( 1952 ) Kirk Douglas. They were both good movies. I'll have to buy them and add them to my collection.

Don't forget Daniel Boone with Fess Parker ( T.V. Series ) ran from 1964 to 1970. All six seasons are on dvd now. I have seasons 1 through 5, and will be getting season 6 in the near future.

And don't forget Fess Parker also played Davey Crockett in the Walt Disney films.

There is one called "The Trap" with Oliver Reed that is pretty entertaining. Available on Youtube.
