Fiction is one thing, but false history is another matter. Television writers and producers could just make up any fictional characters that they would like to do, without screwing up American History. MeTV is showing this series at 8am CDT weekday mornings, and it is the most awful mishmash of lies and false premises which could ever be imagined. This "Grand Alliance" is the episode airing this morning, and it is no different than the entire series. Daniel Boone is portrayed as teaming up with an escaped slave who became an Indian chief (like that could have ever happened)played by Rosie Grier. The two of them save the nation (which did not yet exist, he lived in the western edge of the colony of Kentucky)from a plot by the Spanish who intend to attack way up there. The whole series is like that. Daniel Boone and his wife, Rebekka had at least six children, but in this there are just the two with unusual names, Jemima and Israel. Then Jemima disappears without explanation, and I guess that she is presumed to have married and moved away. Before the unlikely character portrayed by Rosie Grier, Daniel's best friend was an Indian named Mingo, who had been educated in England and spoke like a Shakesperean actor, while he dressed like a cowboy picture stereotype with a feather stuck in his headband. With no evidence that Daniel Boone was ever an abolitionist, he is portrayed as preaching against slavery in the 1700's and helping slaves escape, and being the best friend of an escaped slave. The issue of abolition did not even arise that early. This is just a bunch of lies and confusion of history.
