    Overview

    Self-defence was part of life in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. A man expected to look after his own family and property as the local parish constables were not necessarily a reliable police force. In some parishes the constables were either old men, or non-existent. Men were also expected to join the local fencibles or trained bands, a militia for the defence of the kingdom in times of trouble. Skill-at-arms was therefore not unknown in the general population, and these skills were taken to the New World by the colonists. In times of tension with the native tribes, the fact that the colonists could, if needs must, protect themselves, was useful.

    Details

    Jamestown Settlers are a militia unit recruitable only in the Road to Independence campaign and available only to the Virginia Colonists. They are a relatively cheap unit which means that they can be recruited in abundance, however they have a slighty slower rate of fire than regular Line Infantry. Despite this the unit is still able to prove its worth as in the Road to Independence campaign, they will be facing Natives, whoch rout easily when faced against gunpowder units.
