Lawrence Valley was depopulated.� There is speculation as to its cause, but if other European experiences carry any weight, the diseases that Cartier’s men began spreading almost immediately in 1535 were at least partly responsible. [121] � The “help” that Champlain provided the Hurons led to a fairly unique event in 1609.� It is about the only surviving account of what North American warfare was like before Europeans arrived.� Champlain went with a Huron war party to go hunt their rivals, the Mohawks.� Champlain was their secret weapon.� The Huron and Mohawk met on the shores of Lake Champlain.� The Huron sent a delegation to the Mohawks, to confirm their willingness to fight.� The Mohawk then hastily made a barricade.� That night, the two war parties camped within earshot of each other, singing songs and shouting insults.� The next day, the groups approached each other, as three Mohawk chiefs advanced to meet the Huron, still with no arrows being fired or other hostile behavior, Champlain came from his hiding place behind the Huron warriors and shot the chiefs with his arquebus, which immediately killed two of them and mortally wounded the third.� The Huron killed many surprised and overmatched Mohawk warriors that day. [122] � The event gave more evidence of the notion that pre-European Native American warfare, even among such “savage” tribes as the Mohawk, resembled rugby matches more than European-style warfare.

The lustrous aura surrounding the Founding Fathers dims greatly when the minimized facets of their lives are considered.� They were all-too mortal.� As Howard Zinn wrote, the American Revolution was “A Kind of Revolution.” [173] � Although there was some of the “rabble” effect of the common people, as in the English Civil War, the American Revolution was obviously a revolt of American elites, as shown by the names that signed the Declaration of Independence, with the Constitution giving full citizens’ rights to white, land-owning men, and the fact that the oligarchy tried managing the “rabble” from the beginnings of the American Revolution, and quickly took over the American political system.� Although Ma son Locke Weems began fabricating fairy tales about George Washington immediately after his death, and Weems eventually concocted the cherry tree story from thin air, Boston was indeed a hotbed of radicalism before the Revolution began, there was some true heroism shown by the Founding Fathers, and the common people played a significant role.� The “rabble” was given lip service, a Bill of Rights was passed, much as the English Parliament did exactly 100 years earlier, and some other measures that led to today’s USA are reasons to look upon it with some respect.
