The Wild West

W.Britain's newest range, Dirty Shirt Blue, will focus on the people and events of the American West from 1860s to the 1890s.
Two major laws enacted by Congress in 1862 facilitated the settlement of the West: the Homestead Act and the Pacific Railroad Act. Free land attracted a multitude of new immigrants to the territories, but created tension with the native peoples inhabiting the west, often resulting in violence.
The name for this new range comes from the image of the small force of regular army soldiers serving on the series of outposts across the frontier. It was a hard life serving
on isolated posts with little room for career advancement. For the most part their mission was to prevent warfare among the various tribes or between the natives and the settlers, and despite the stories that have come down through the history books, a good number never experienced combat.
Although the Army represented U.S. Government and enforced its policies, this complex story of westward expansion cannot be told by only military actions. The range will include many of the other players too, Native people, hunters, settlers, cowboys,
outlaws and lawmen.
