US Army Frontier Scouts 1840-1921 free pdf The role of the Frontier scout in the US Army during the period of expansion to the West, was often far more important than that of the commanding officer himself. They possessed a priceless knowledge of the geography, people and characteristics of the great, unknown American hinterland and from the earliest days of exploration, the US Army depended on its scouts to guide them across the plains and through the mountains as they guarded the nation's frontier settlements. This book looks at these scouts, covering their organization, uniform, and weapons and includes details of many famous scouts such as 'Wild Bill' Hikock and 'Buffalo Bill' Cody.
