Valiant Miniature Kit# 9875 - US Cavalry Trooper, 1890's. The post Civil War Cavalry was a rough lot, made up mainly of immigrants and the more unsavory types that are led into a peacetime army. They were a hard riding, hard drinking, hard fighting group that had little sympathy for the Indian cause. As one skirmish led to another, skirmishes became battles and as the Indians position deteriorated battles became massacres.
