The Historical Facts Essay

Compose a five paragraph essay in MLA style with a Works Cited page that discusses some of the historical facts used by James Fennimore Cooper in his novel, The Last of the Mohicans. As there are too many historical facts in the novel to use in a short essay, limit your choices to those that interest you the most: actual people represented in the novel; actual locations and names of forts and towns; actual battles and various skirmishes and attacks; and so forth. Your essay should be based on research and documentation of the sources you used for your information/quotes in your essay. Feel free to include historical photographs and drawings that you may find during the course of your research.
