Working out of a French fort in the lower Mississippi River he met and married She Ne Yah, a young Choctaw maiden. Durant became a leader in the Choctaw nation and a Captain leading a detachment of Choctaw troops fighting with General Andrew Jackson and Choctaw Chief Pushmataha in the War of 1812. Captain Durant sat with Choctaw Chiefs in the negotiations and signing of many Treaties with the United States government that led to the Trail of Tears and forced removl to the Indian Territory west of their ancestral homeland on the Mississippi River. Follow six generations of Durants as they struggle with aggressive white settlers who harass them and force them from their Mississippi homeland.
