The Last of the Mohicans

Way before Daniel Day Lewis was in “Lincoln”, this was him as Hawkeye, in the movie, based on the book by James Fenimore Cooper, “The Last of the Mohicans”.

In 1757, a few years before the Revolutionary War, some Indians and British colonists lived in happy times, until there was a war between the French and some bad Indians. This was different ever since British colonists came in 1607 and met Pocahontas, Pilgrims came and held there first Thanksgiving feast, and must be before or after French people came to Canada, and Quebec was known as New France.

When they play games, there first game was lacrosse. We even play this game today, and how they used to back then. When there are battles, Hawkeye and his 2 brothers, would fight very brave, as they took on other Indians like Mohawks.

Daniel Day Lewis was very young in this one, as he was very handy, on how to handle a musket rifle. To tell you the truth, time was different when people had the fear of Indians. That was when they had to be mostly killed, every single on of them until the Revolutionary War began. Some might’ve survived in 1776, but mostly had to be killed in 1757.

So Daniel Day Lewis maybe good in other movies, but this was him when he was young, as the most famous character by James Fenimore Cooper. He and his 2 brothers as Indians, were the last of the Mohicans.
