Note the firing positions high in the walls. They would have required a catwalk to be able to fire from them. None were built as the fort was never actually used to fend off raiders. By the time it was finished, in 1872, a peace treaty had been signed with the tribes that had threatened the pioneers.

An interesting set-up as if they were here just yesterday! Thankfully the firing positions bring in ample light as clerestory windows. I love the "unitards".

I like the long johns or PJ's. I wonder if they have a flap in the back.
