Digging for the Truth: Roanoke, the Lost Colony

Loading...
In 1587, over 100 settlers landed in the New World to establish England's first permanent colony. Three years later, they had vanished. Investigating America's oldest missing-persons case, Josh Bernstein flies high above Roanoke Island in a powered para-glider; climbs and cores a cypress tree to study the climate conditions the settlers faced; participates in an American-Indian powwow; and learns to cook as the local 16th-century natives once did. Finally, Josh travels back to England to trace the roots of a family whose DNA suggests that at least one of the lost colonists may have survived.

Battlefield Detectives: The Revolutionary War: The Battle of Oriskany

Loading...
"The Battle of Oriskany was a massacre. Four hundred Patriot militiamen out of a force of eight hundred died for the loss of less than eighty Loyalists, making it the bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War. Most surprisingly, the ambushers were mainly warriors of the Seneca and Mohawk nations fighting with the British and armed with tomahawks, knives and war clubs. In this revealing episode, Battlefield Detectives analyzes the evidence, dramatically re-enacts the engagement, and discovers what made the battle so bloody and why so many militiamen had to die. Scholars and historians explain the little known story of American Indian involvement in the Revolutionary War."--Publisher's web site.
