Perfectly fair my foot.

I collect old history books, and the stories of the INdians and their savagry against the settlers is well documented.

And there are no stories of Englishmen capturing Frenchmen and selling them as slaves in the new world.

The history of savagery of the French and their Indian allies is indeed well-documented.

As is that of the English and their allies. But much of that documentation is in French and of little interest to most Americans, so it is not surprising that you are unfamiliar with it.

This was a war that went on without really stopping for almost as long as American has been a nation. Horrible deeds were committed by all sides.

Your history books were written by white men. Indians did not write their side of the story down. There is a bias by the authors of your books. Books can be made to say anything.
