Thanks for posting that--very neat!  should make some good reading this winter.

Thanks, Professor.

Thanks for posting this link. Last year between shooting matches at Thombstone prior to shooting at Winter Range I was able to visit the museums at Fort Huachuva. Something I've wanted to do for years.

I was at Huachuca in June on a site survey and stopped by the museum. It's a great little museum, but it's gotten smaller since the 90s and the traveling cavalry forge is no longer on display. That's a very rare item which shouldn't be parked in storage! Even so, the view down officer's row is worth the trip all by itself.
