A lesson in butchering.I understand they took license with some facts, ( no surprise there) encapsulating some events into a ten year period or so (1846 and thereabouts). But the violence was some of the worst I've ever seen onscreen.Better to READ about events, folks.

to ew York now. A couple of Irish uncles and their families. was thinking
of going but will give it a miss.
