Native American Captain Wolf (John Burke), an actual Indian from this area over 200 years ago, tells the story. Hear how treaties affected pioneering, settlement and civilization. This new program was developed for the event.
Now imagine yourself in the late 1700's and early 1800's. The Connecticut Western Reserve offers good land at reasonable terms. You are ready for a new chapter replacing your New England farm life. Would you like to settle in this forested wilderness?
Uhh, but the Native Americans still claim this area. No treaty. Upset about the influx of settlers with quite different values.
Still ready to settle here? Might want to reconsider.
