So I just finished watching a four-hour documentary called "The War That Made America." The title makes you think that it will talk about the American Revolution, a perception that is reinforced by the documentary's beginning the story in 1776. They show George Washington and his troops hearing the brand-new Declaration of Independence in the contested area of Long Island. But the documentary soon flashes back to an earlier part of Washington's life, which is when he was present at the so-called Jumonville incident, the event that began the French and Indian War, twenty years before.
