Tries to make fun of Americans, using something the British actually did as the example.

Wat?

Well the British and French actually used a lot of diplomacy with the natives. Also in the early 19th century (when the natives still had some land). Britain tried to block the U.S. and create a proper native state, this was one of our objectives in the current war. Unfortunately the war ended in a stalemate leaving the U.S. free to continue expansion on the continent. Summary: U.S. (and Spain) were the ones that attacked natives. Britain generally treated them to diplomacy.

I'm not saying the U.S. was perfect with the Indians after we won our independence (very far from it, we treated them like crap) But in that specific example, they were British, not American.

Nope, they could be English, Dutch, Scottish, French or Swedish. No such thing as Britain then anyway. ;)

Alright, then they were Englishmen. Which what you said is my point. They couldn't have been American, there was no United States at the time.

The way they were illustrated, they were Englishmen. The pilgrims were puritans who left Englad and went to whatever the netherlands were called back then (was it Holland?), but they didn't like it there so they decided to go to the new world. So they were technically English, although a few of the children may have been Dutch citizens.
