THE RAID ON St. FRANCIS 1759
Girls With Guns #3
The militia/frontiersman spirit derives from an early American dependence
on arms to protect themselves from foreign armies and hostile Native Americans.
Survival depended upon everyone being capable of using a weapon.
Prior to the American Revolution there was neither budget nor manpower
nor government desire to maintain a full-time army.
Therefore, the armed citizen-soldier carried the responsibility. Service in militia,
including providing one's own ammunition and weapons, was mandatory for all men.
Firearms therefore played a vital role in American settlement and expansion,
therefore American women were no stranger to their use,
and even competent in the manufacture and repair of weapons.
Both the necessity to hunt and the need for protection from the sometimes hostile native culture,
made the use of firearms a crucial component in the settlement of America.
