    Overview

    A musket is a status symbol among the tribes, even though it is not as useful in a fight as an old-fashioned and reliable bow. It is, however, a mark of personal bravery that a warrior has taken one in battle, or been considered worthy enough to have been given one of the precious weapons. These men are the most irregular of forces, unwilling to take formal army discipline, yet willing to fight like men possessed when the need arises.

    In the early days of European settlement, the Native Americans were happy to work with the various foreign powers that colonized America, even forming alliances against their neighbours and other Europeans. The tribes soon became involved in trade, fought wars because of the allegiances they forged, and were forced into new alliances as old tribal enemies took up with Europeans.

    Details

    The Native American missile cavalry of choice for Colonial powers, they are slightly superior to Mounted Tribal Gunners although they are more expensive. They may not compare very favourably to Dragoons in a straight up fight yet in their home territory they can fare better. They are rarely worth the time to recruit them though, European ranged cavalry provided much greater firepower and are not as helpless in melee.
