:: Elaine...not only does the script mention the burial scaffolds off to the side, at least one of them is quite visible when Hawkeye nods towards them. Interesting, though, that this might be an inaccuracy. Didn't know that.
That's right, Marcia! (Though I didn't give the scaffold in the scene a second thought until AFTER I posted.)
...And yes, the eastern Indians (many others, also) were big on graves. Of course, earlier there were those fascinating mound burials!
Anyway, Marcia...I didn't want to push it and add yet ANOTHER historical inaccuracy. Some seem so fragile these days, though this
is not, of course, on par with wigs and sneakers! :)
