Fort Davis National Historic Site

From 1854 until 1891, U.S. Army troops stationed at Fort Davis in Texas protected travelers on the San Antonio-El Paso Road en route to California. Under the Act of 1866, for the first time, African-American soldiers were allowed to serve in the peacetime army and those stationed at Fort Davis contributed to protecting this key post in Western Texas.  (Photo: Wikicommons)
