Example text

The colonists, having removed the French threat to their peace, began moving into Iroquois hunting territory, dispossessing the native inhabitants. Iroquois warriors fought alongside Canadians and Tories during the Revolution, but after the American victory their long alliance with the British ended. The Revolution, marked an end to colonial warfare in North America, but a pattern of mutual cooperation and mistrust had been established that would color later dealings between Indians and whites.

The British and the Americans were largely unable to organize their Native American allies into effective irregular forces. Also, the frontier had shifted westward, and most of the major American settlements were out of reach of Indian raids. Despite the signing of the TREATY OF PARIS (1783), which officially ended the Revolutionary War, fighting on the western borders continued for years. In the Ohio Valley, for example, conflicts continued through the signing of the TREATY OF GREENVILLE (1795), and, due to the efforts of the Shawnee leader TECUMSEH in the WAR OF 1812 (1812–15), into the early 19th century.

Next, Apache youth were well trained for the rigors of raiding and warfare. As adults they could travel up to 40 miles a day on foot; easily camouflage themselves; and get by on little food, water, and sleep. Apache employed guerrilla tactics rather than open combat. They would surprise or ambush their enemies, strike hard and fast, and then withdraw. Finally, they usually had a well-thought-out plan of retreat. When withdrawing from a skirmish, the warriors would scatter in different directions, making pursuit nearly impossible.
