Fort Riley: Citadel of the Frontier West
By William McKale and William Young. Established in 1853 Fort Riley was instantly embroiled in conflict as territorial strife grew into civil war and hostilities between Indians and settlers erupted in the West. Standing as a central military stronghold, it escaped the gradual demise of most western forts and evolved with a changing army into the 20th century. Fort Riley exists today as one of two active posts in Kansas. Volume 6 in the Kansas Forts published by the Kansas Historical Society, documents the history of eight important Kansas forts through historic photographs, illustrations, and maps.
