Indiana Mounted Rangers

War and combat are tricky business.  Weapons must be handled and used correctly, troops must move in the proper formations at the correct time and even little mistakes can result in losses.  Add to that a thousand pound animal with a mind or its own, and the whole process becomes increasingly more difficult.  Watch as members of the Indiana Mounted Rangers demonstrate the power and the advantages presented by mounted riflemen.

Several hundred mounted riflemen accompanied Harrison on the Tippecanoe Campaign.  They were used as scouts.  They rode the flanks of the army for protection. They carried messages to and from Fort Knox in Vincennes. They guarded the supply boats as they made their way up the Wabash River. They were indispensable!  Come learn more about their role in the War of 1812.
