Settlers were Armed and Prepared to Defend their Land

As the war lingered on and increasing numbers of men went to fight, those who stayed behind were often called to defend their homesteads and towns against outlaws and at roving bands of Native American's.

For the most part, these men didn't have the most up-to-date rifles.  But, they sufficed. 

My thanks, gentlemen!
