"Standing in the remains of that old Fort looking out through the gun ports, I could not help but start imaginging that I myself was one of the old-time Cavalry soldiers staring out into the sun on the lookout for marauding Indians! What a tough and hearty breed of people it took to conquer the west and bring this great nation together!" --Chuck Mack.
