Hundreds of six mule wagons like these moved the supplies for combat units in the field. Commercial freighters supplied the forts and base camps.Under a picture of the front view of a Freighter Wagon:Freighters used still larger and heavier wagons to haul the food, hardware, and machinery needed in the western settlements.
