Driving along a road in Kansas, we happened to see a sign for Fort Wallace. It was out in the middle of what seemed like nowhere, but we decided to check it out. What we found was that after about a mile down a dirt road, was an old graveyard. From Wikipedia: *Fort Wallace (ca. 1865–1882) was a US Cavalry fort built in Wallace County, Kansas to help defend settlers against Cheyenne and Sioux raids. All that remains today is the cemetery, but for a period of over a decade Fort Wallace was one of the most important military outposts on the frontier. * It was one of those unexpected journeys that are so surprising to see! We were really glad that we stopped! There were two rows of graves, with the most interesting descriptions on them. This was just one of them.
This photograph was shot with a Canon XTI in Fort Wallace, Kansas, USA.
