Excerpt from The History of Bacon's and Ingram's Rebellion in Virginia, in 1675 and 1676
At last it was concluded, as a good expedient for to put the coun trey in to som degree of safety, for to plant Forts upon the Fronteres, thinkeing there by to put a stop unto the Indians excurssions: which after the expence of a grate deale of time and charge, being finished, came short of the designed ends. For the Indians quickly found out where about these Mouse traps were sett, and for what purpose, and so resalued to keepe out of there danger; which they might easely ennough do, with out any detriment to there designes. For though here by they were compeld (tis pdsible) to goe a litle about, yet they never thought much of there labour, so long as they were not debar'd from doing of Mischeife; which was not in the power of these forts to prevent: For if'that the English did, at any time, know that there was more ways in to the wood then one, to kill Deare, the Indians found more then a thousand out of the wood, to kill Men, and not com neare the danger of the forts neather.
