For three decades - from 1763/1764 to 1793/1794 - Scots/Irish settlers of southwestern Pennsylvania eked out a subsistence-level existence and faced all sorts of dangers from wild animals to disease to Indians raids. This article begins a focus on their life and times during this period. The possible subjects are many: forts, rangers, home- and barn-raising, communion services, church-based 'courts', whiskey stilleries, Sunday Schools, the 'taking-in' of orphans, the Whiskey Rebellion, etc. This article sets the stage for addressing these topics with a simple, extremely basic, focus on how adult males dressed, how they armed themselves, and how young males learned the skills needed as adults (Boyz II Men).
