On This Day In History James Fenimore Cooper's 'The Last of the Mohicans' Was Published


As History.com notes, on this day in 1826 James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans was published.

You can read about Cooper and the classic novel via the below link:

Note: I read The Last of the Mohicans when I was a kid and I reread the novel after I saw Michael Mann's great film version of Cooper's story. (The film and novel are different, but I like both).

I also like Cooper's early novel, The Spy.
