The attack by Indians on the various parties suggests the lack of concern about security on the part of the pioneers. "Carelessness and failure to provide security were to curse the first years of the new frontier. The first Kentucky settlers would neither reconnoiter if they could possibly avoid it, nor guard their camps if they could possibly sleep. Worn out by the exhausting labor of wilderness travel, they wanted rest more than safety, and were willing to run any risk to get it." (BAKELESS:96-97)
