A bit of serendipity....I am reading James Michener's Texas, since we are in that part of the country....one of my goals is to read all of Michner's books.....I just read the part about frontier forts...1855 to 1890s,,,,In New Mexico I went to Fort Union....same era.....could just imagine the Native Americans on their horses racing across the plains....or the Calvary coming to the rescue of a wagon train.....guess I watched too many Westerns as a kid......Fort Union was also supply station along the Santa Fe trail.....Also love small,narrow-focused museum....went to the Rough Riders Museum in Las Vegas New Mexico.....The Rough riders had their reunions in there. Both places were excellent.....
