Army on the Frontier

"Армия Фронтира"
Исторический термин, применяется по отношению к действиям Армии США в период освоения западных территорий - "Фронтира" [Frontier], примерно до 1890. Основными задачами армии были защита поселений от индейцев, содействие основанию новых поселений путем налаживания связи между старыми и новыми поселениями, развитие водных путей, строительство дорог и - позднее - телеграфной связи, и строительство железных дорог, а также полицейские функции до образования гражданских органов управления. В 1867, в разгар войн с индейцами [Indian Wars], на Западе действовало более 100 армейских постов, большинство из которых были позднее заброшены. Некоторые из них превратились в постоянные поселения
