Key figures include George Washington, Myles Standish, Daniel Morgan, Banastre Tarleton, Benjamin Franklin, Oliver Hazard Perry, Nathan Bedford Forest, Joseph Stilwell, Chiang Kai-shek and George Marshall. Battles covered are Plymouth Plantation Militia Attack on the Massachusett Tribe, Defeat of General Edward Braddock in the French and Indian War, Cowpens in the Revolutionary War, Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812 , the Fort Pillow Massacre in the Civil War, and the Battle for Burma Road in World War II.
