Fort Bayard was erected in 1866 during a time when the United States Army was getting ready to secure the Southwest for settlement and deal with the problem of hostile Apache Indians. The Ninth and Tenth Cavalry, the famous Buffalo Soldier divisions, were black soldiers who had distinguished themselves as strong and fearless fighters in the Civil War. Believing that they were especially well suited to the task, the army sent the Buffalo Soldiers to this country to fight the Apaches. Many of them died and were buried here, in the Fort Bayard National Cemetery. In this cemetery you will find veterans of not only the Civil War but also World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Fort Bayard was run as a military outpost until the turn of the century, when it was turned into a hospital for war veterans suffering from tuberculosis.
