Series Description: The Pequot War was a pivotal event in early American history that set the stage for the ultimate domination of all Native Americans by Europeans. Narrated by two-time Academy Award nominee Roy Scheider, MYSTIC VOICES: THE STORY OF THE PEQUOT WAR presents a balanced view of events, underlying causes, consequences and legacy of the first declared war in American history. Although the conflict was small by today's standards, the rhetoric of the English Puritans made their victory over the "heathens" a significant event in the early history of the United States and crystallized the attitudes and myths that became the foundations of a nation.
