Native American war party camps

This blog, A Woodsrunners Diary,  always has interesting information on 18th century wilderness living.  This particular post is of a short lecture about Southeast and Northeast Indian war camps.  What I found most interesting was the techniques these Native American warriors used to stay hidden and lightweight when going to war.  It really reminds one how with the right kind of skills and preparation, a group of warriors can really disappear into the terrain.
