Description

This is one of the cliffs that was at Fort Davis. We were at Fort Davis during the 150th anniversary re-enactments. There was no way the weather could have been better; gorgeous blue sky, and perfect white clouds like jewels. The buildings of the fort were originally built right at the foot of the cliffs, seen behind the house. It didn't take the Indians long to realize that they could have a bit of fun and reek havoc on the Palefaces at the same time, by throwing boulders off the cliffs, and right on the buildings. Once that started, it didn't take the Army long to realize it might be an idea to move those buildings further out from the cliffs! I have some pretty good shots of our time there, as well as an example of how small our world really is. We live in very rural northeast Kansas, and the town of Nicodemus is about 50 or 60 miles northwest of us. Nicodemus is one of the very few remaining towns that were founded by freed Blacks, after the Civil War,and remains populated by their descendants. Nicodemus is very small, and has few people or business now, more like a village I guess. I've never had the pleasure, but I've been told that there is a lady there that makes killer barbecue.We did have meet her once, and a fine lady she was. So, back to Fort Davis. There were a number of men there portraying 'Buffalo Soldiers'. These gentlemen come from all over the country to be a part of re-enactments where-ever they are going on. We were visiting with one of these gentlemen, and he mentioned that he was from a "kind of unique" little town in Kansas by the name of Nicodemus. He had no idea that we were from the same area. We then asked him if he knew the bar-b-q lady. He did kind of a combination chuckle, outright laugh, and smirk as he said 'Oh yes, I know her. She's my ex-wife. He was a great guy, and it was a day we'll remember forever.
