was written in that 1840’s and took place in the 1740’s. The third characteristic of
Romanticism that fit this excerpt is love of country, because he wrote about an old New
York colony. The fourth Characteristics of Romanticism that fits this excerpt is emphasis
on emotions. Bravery was shown by Natty Bumppo when the hurons were throwing
Tomahawks at him, and he didn’t even blink, or when they were throwing knifes and
shooting rifles at him he still didn’t blink. This story also showed love by Chingachgook

hurons toward the Deerslayer when they were throwing weapons and shooting rifles at
him, and he didn’t blink. That is why this story is a good example of Romanticism
