Fort Lyon and Fort Union

Fort Lyon and Fort Union
Creator: Riddle, J. R.
Date: Between 1886 and 1890
These are views of soldiers and buildings at Fort Lyon, Colorado, and Fort Union, New Mexico. Fort Lyon was active from 1868 through 1888. It was laid out as a typical 19th-century western military fort possessing a central parade ground surrounded by officers' row in the north, company quarters on the east and west, and the headquarters building to the south. Fort Union was established in 1851 as the guardian of the Santa Fe Trail. During it's forty-year history, three different forts were constructed close together. The third Fort Union was the largest in the American Southwest and functioned as a military garrison, territorial arsenal, and military supply depot for the southwest.
