Nancy watched as her home lands grew smaller and smaller with the advancement of the white man.

Nancy's husband, Kingfisher, was shot and killed in a battle with the Creek Indians. She picked up her dead husband's musket and led the Cherokee to victory. Because of this, she was honored with the highest ranking any Cherokee woman could attain, Ghighuaa.

Nancy's life stood for peace but she always warned her people of many bad things to come. She became the first woman to ever talk at a peace treaty with the white man. Her words helped her people retain some of their lands. She spoke:

"You know that women are always looked upon as nothing, but we are your mothers, you are our sons, our cry is all for peace, let it continue. This peace must last forever. Let your women's sons be ours, our sons be yours, let your women hear our words."

Losing the final battle, Boudica and her daughters take their own lives. Based on the true story of the Boudican Revolt in 61 AD.

Synopsis- Two thousand years ago, the Roman Empire conquered most of Europe by slaughtering and enslaving millions of ancient Celts. In 55BC, Julius Caesar invaded Britain for its wealth in copper and tin. The Britons, or ancient Celts, were made up of many tribes ruled by kings and queens. The Romans created client kingdoms and took half of every tribes wealth and production. When Queen Boudica, of the Iceni tribe, stood up to the Roman oppression, She was flogged and her two young daughters were raped. In 61 AD, Boudica led a revolt through, Camulodunum, Verulamium and what is now London, killing 70 thousand Romans.
