One of the original Fort Robinson buildings is now a museum. Initially, in 1874, the site was an encampment during the Indian wars. The site became a fort in 1878 and continued to grow in size through WWII.

Its storied history includes the surrender of Chief Crazy Horse, Walter Reed as the Fort’s doctor, the Buffalo Soldiers (native Americans), major depot for Army horses and mules, training center for 14,000 K-9 dogs, and POW camp during WWII. Today it is a 22,000 acre Nebraska State Park.

The scene made me think of taps.

Thought for the Day: One does not sell the land people walk on.
