The initial period of the discovery of gold mines in Goiás comprehended, beyond the glories sung by the writers of its history, the intense and typical disparities of the processes of gold rush. The empire of greed has brought the need for the establishment of forces capable of imposing order and defends the interests of the kingdom in such valuable lands. The arrival of the first company of Dragons Cavalry on those distant mines dates back to 1736, preceding even the installation of Vila Boa, single village of Goyases until the early nineteenth century. Its contingent had to stand there for a minimum period of ten years, until the defensive strength of the region was properly structured, a factor for which contributed the organization of the first troops of Ordinances in 1739, and the creation of the Regiment of Auxiliary Cavalry in 1764. As the administration of the territory settled roots and began to organize their bases, Goyases’ troops influenced and were influenced by this process. Our goal in this work is to analyze the formation and strengthening of such forces regarding the consolidation of the military structure in Goiás until 1770.
