The Comanche reacted to the relocation of eastern Native American tribes and the increasing encroachment of the settlers that threatened the survival of the Great Plains tribes. The government's answer was the Second Cavalry, created by U.S. Secretary of War Jefferson Davis. It was designed to fight a mobile war with innovative tactics, this select unit tunred the tide of the battle for the West and also forged the commanders of both sides of America's next great conflict.
