Company A

Return to Main Records Listing

According to reports and corresponsdence from Nolan, the men of Company A performed their duties admirably while at Fort Larned. Despite their competent peformance there was racial tension with the white infantry soldiers stationed at the fort. On January 2, 1869, a day after an altercation between the men of Company A and soldiers from the 3rd Infantry, the Fort Larned Cavalry stables burned to the ground. Nobody knows who was responsible for the fire since the post commander, Major Yard, decided not to investigate. Instead, he sent Co. A to Fort Zarah.
