Ok so I'm bored out of my mind tonight.
I pull out The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack (freaking awesome soundtrack, btw)
and as I'm listening, a question pops up in my head.
How accurate were the fighting and combat scenes in that movie?
Any Pre Revolutionary War Frontiersman recreators in here?
Flintlocks, uniforms, tactics, etc. How well were they done in that movie?
Enquiring minds want to know.

ETA: I can't spell well when I'm durnk.

I think they nailed the unconventional nature of the combat.....at least as from what I've read. Aside from the siege, in the wilderness it was bloody murder. It's so very odd that decades later a more conventional war would occur with set piece units engaging by the rules of the day. But the French-Indian War was ruthless. Magwah was excellent...and interestingly enough I'm watching another Michael Mann flick with the same actor..."Heat" Wes Studi was one of Lt. Vincent Hanna Robbery-Homicide Detectives.

I am pretty sure that the two Mohicans 'sniping' from the walls of the fort was an innaccurate scene. I don't think muskets of that era had anything like that kind of range or accuracy. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

My name is John Titor. I was there....Yes, it was pretty accurate, except the women were nowhere near that pretty. What else do you wish to know?
