TRAIN OF THOUGHT

BOB'S PICK
OF THE WEEK

    This 1965 book lists just about every military fort that existed in the United States up until the time it was published. Fort Crawford on the Uncompahgre doesn't get much mention. But an earlier Fort Crawford, on the Mississippi River in Wisconsin, created during the War of 1812, does.

     It is a great reference source for anyone looking at historical forts and trading posts. It can help point you toward more detailed resources.

ABOUT ME

Lodore overlook 1 copy.jpg

I retired as editorial page editor of The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, Colorado in 2014. Since then, I've continued to write a twice-a-month history column for the Sentinel, while seizing every opportunity I can, with my wife Judy or my horses, to enjoy the beautiful outdoors of the Colorado Plateau.
