Did You Know?

Cavalry demonstration Fort DavisNHS.

Fort Davis never had a fort wall or palisade. In fact, most western military forts built after the Civil War did not have walls around them. Forts with wooden palisade walls (as depicted in many classic movies) were actually very rare in the West.
