The Last of the Mohicans

Question: What happened to the other Redcoats who were in the canoes during the escape from the ambush? By the time they send the canoes over the waterfall and retreat to the cave, only the six of them are left.

Question: At the fort they cover their cannons with sheepskin. Why?

Answer: During inclement weather, dry sheepskins were used to keep rain from entering the barrel. During battle, wet sheepskins were used to cool down the barrel to decrease the likelihood of the powder exploding prematurely.

Visible crew/equipment: At the surrender of the fort, as the English are marching out, the French general removers his hat. The English Commander, Monroe, says "The fort is yours, Monsieur". Look over his shoulder. In the distant valley you can see what are either two tourist busses or perhaps mobile catering vans. (01:05:40)

Duncan: What the bloody hell plan is this?
Cora Munro: I want you to go.

Duncan: Coward.
