HISTORICAL INFORMATION

The Last of the Mohicans is set in the mid-eighteenth century, when the pioneer frontier man was eking out a living in fledging America. At that time the English had colonized America. The English at that time were also at loggerheads with France and involved in warfare with France in America. The French and Indian War provides a backdrop to The Last of the Mohicans. The fall of Fort William Henry and subsequent massacre of civilians took place in 1757.


At this time, Native American tribes had been subdued and pushed back. However there were still many independent Indians and tensions between Europeans and Indians ran high. There existed a confederation among the Indian tribes, which occupied the northwestern part of the colony of New York, which was first known as the Five Nations. At a later date it became the Six Nations. The original confederation consisted of the Mohawks, the Oneidas, the Senecas, the Cayugas and the Onandagoes. The Sixth tribe was the Juscaroras.
