Kit# 9971 - US Cavalry Indian Wars
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9971 - US Cavalry NCO, Indian Wars, 1870-90. At the conclusion of the Civil War, the U.S. Army was one of the finest military machines in the world, able to meet any of the great powers on equal footing. In the last half of the 19th century, the Army faced only two enemies, the Indians and the U.S. Congress. While the frontier forces were struggling with the Indians, the congress, upholding the traditions of incompetence and stupidity it had established under the Continental Congress, decimated the army. By 1873, the U.S. Army was down to 25,000 men of whom 15,000 were on the frontier covering an area of over a million square miles.
