Just to set the record straight......
15 March 2002 | by (Sapporo, Japan) – See all my reviews

"Northwest Passage", a show which a TV Guide article of the time heralded as "When the West was in the East," sparked my interest in the French and Indian War. Although it was over 43 years ago, I do remember the specific 10-19-58 episode entitled "Break-Out" which viewer Dinky 4 mentions. Keith Larson as Major Rogers was not merely captured by "Bad Guys." He was captured by the French forces and as such, Rogers was a prisoner of war working on the road with the other POWs who would not even give their names, ranks, and serial numbers but instead insisted that they were all named "Smith." All knew that if the French knew they had Rogers as a prisoner, the Rangers would never be the same. Of course, great by the end of the episode, Rogers led his fellow POWs in a break-out. I assume that anyone who has seen either the Spencer Tracy movie of the same name or the TV series "Northwest Passage" will think of Major Robert Rogers as an American hero/founding father as well as the originator of The Army Rangers. But here's a bit of a true-history twist. Twenty years after fighting the French in the French and Indian War, Rogers returned to America from England to fight against the American colonists in the American Revolution.
