"We have to look to the past and get back to some basic principles if there's gonna be any future worth having."
"Centennial" is a great mini-series to discover America It goes over a span of 200 years It's about Pasquinel, a solitary trader with the Indians, who made his way through territory no white man has ever traveled, defending his trade and his life It's about a man from Scotland who had come seeking solitude, but he found friendship and love His name was Alexander McKeag It's about the legendary Arapaho leader, Lame Beaver, who knew that the coming of the white man was the beginning of change
"Centennial" is also about strong men, men of destiny and vision It's also about stubborn men who only saw little in the windy, water-shy stretch of plains to stop for on their trek to a new place called Oregon
"Centennial" is also about men of integrity like the young Mennonite named Levi Zendt who could not know it at the time that he was destined to leave the home he loved and share the dream of Alexander McKeag It's about traders like Zendt, and soldiers like Maxwell Mercy It's about men of honor, like Major Mercy who worked tirelessly to bring about a lasting peace Men of vision like the stubborn German from the Volga named Hans Brumbaugh, who had walked from St. Louis to find gold It's about the Englishman Oliver Seccombe, who would found an empire from the dream of a lifetime A ranch that would spread from the Rocky Mountains on the west to the Nebraska border with Longhorns driven north from Texas by John Skimmerhorn and R. J. Poteet
"Centennial is about many more characters like Clay Basket, the fiery Indian woman who shared the life Pasquinel loved best; Lise Bockweiss, the golden-haired lady of St. Louis; Pasquinel brothers whose names would strike terror into the hearts of all white men who thought of crossing the plains; Frank Skimmerhorn, the obsessed militia colonel who led a disgraceful massacre against Cheyenne chief, Broken Thumb; the frontier lawman Alex Dumire who would fall prey to a kind of crime the presence of his badge and gun could not prevent; the traveling actors, Mervin and Maude Wendell who founded its fortune power and prestige on stolen money and a murder
