Rifle pits such as this one were dug so that the North West Field Force could watch for Métis along the river bank.

The military encampment (the zareba), dug several hundred feet behind these pits became a safe place for the militia May 9 – May 12, so they posted soldiers along the riverbank to guard the zareba.
