Storyline

Twenty years prior to the Revolutionary War, the British, French and Native American Empires seek to possess the American wilderness. Conflict ignites as 22-year-old George Washington steps onto the world stage as the murderer of a French emissary. In the subsequent battle of Fort Necessity, the emissary's brother leads a French army that defeats Washington. These events lead to the 1755 campaign of British General Edward Braddock and George Washington against the French in the wilderness. With the British a day away, a charismatic French officer leads his French/Indian force in an improbable attack on Braddock's column. The resulting battle will change American history.

An Excellent Documentary of the French & Indian War
12 January 2004 | by highlander775See all my reviews

This movie shows events that occurred some twenty years before the American Revolution(and in part led to it)that being that rarely heard of conflict called The French & Indian War.It was a time when the Redcoats were the good guys,and shows the early years of George Washington,who wanted nothing more than to be an officer in the British Army.Often called a sideshow to the Seven Years War(or First World War)this determined who would rule the North American Continent once and for all.I liked the way that this director used historical reenactors and paintings to tell the story of a struggle so crucial that if lost,we'd all be speaking French today.
