Fort Churchill Nevada Military Outpost of the 1860's Edited by Stanley W. Paher.
The book is based upon the research of Kathryn Totten which was used to create the master plan for the historic preservation of Fort Churchill.
The reader has the opportunity to relive Nevada's frontier era when miners and ranchers were protected by the volunteers and Union soldiers in blue - the men at old Fort Churchill.
As Marshall Humphreys states in the Introduction, "During the tumultous decade of the 1860's in Nevada, the troops at Fort Churchill protected westbound California emigrants, guarded the Pony Express and telegraph lines, fought numerous battles and skirmishes with the Indians, protected area settlements, quelled state prison troubles, intervened in miner's disputes, and were involved in political intrigue controlling Civil War southern sympathizers."
Paperback: 50 pages.
