Pretty much, a brief stop mentioning some French influence, the terrors of the English/Colonial attacks on peaceful Indian nations, and then it’s on to the Revolution. My daughter brought it up to me, as she was perplexed where the George Washington guy learned to run armies during the revolutionary war.
