Transcript of The Last of the Mohicans: Interactive Timeline

The Last of the Mohicans By: James Fenimore Cooper
Timeline By: Brandon Lew The book takes place during the French and Indian War. The French are fighting for control of Fort William Henry. Fort William Henry was commanded by Munro who had two daughters, Alice and Cora. They traveled from Fort Edward in search for their father. They were guided by a Huron Indian named, Magua and Major Heyward. However, their journey was not exactly as they expected. They encountered a religious man named Gamut; a white Indian, Hawkeye; and his comrades, Chingachgook and Uncas. Conflict begins as Hawkeye (a Mohican) blames Magua for leading Alice and Cora in the wrong direction. This led to a short quarreling, but most importantly, the Hurons kidnapped Alice, Cora, Heyward, and Gamut. Cora has affection for Uncas, but is threatened by Magua to marry him. If she marries, Alice will be free. The Mohicans return and kill all of the Hurons except Magua because he escapes. They finally arrive at Fort William Henry and they are reunited with their father. The English declare a state of peace between the two quarreling societies, but due to racial reasons, another blood battle immediately begins and Magua steals Alice and Cora. The Mohicans locate Magua's footprints and they pursue the girls who were placed in different camps. When they arrive at the Delaware camp (where Cora is held), they managed to already free Alice from the people who held her captive at another camp. Uncas reveals his origins as the last Mohican and gives Cora to Magua. The final battle occurs, resulting in the deaths of Cora, Magua, and Uncas. There is a celebratory burial ceremony for the three who died in the battle. People mourned the last warrior of the Mohicans.
