Ambush Set, No.3 - Two Native Warriors Behind Rocky Outcropping

An ambush along any well used track was always a possibility on the early frontier, and the Native people had a clear advantage of knowing every curve and rise that might be used to their advantage. Many hard lessons were learned by European officers. Forward thinking ones employed local scouts as a screen for any expeditions into unsettled areas. The realities of frontier conditions eventually necessitated the formation of regular army organizations trained to fight in small groups in a style that could be successful against irregular warfare.
