About this title


Fort Millard Fillmore, named for the thirteenth President of the United States, was the first U.S. Army fort established in southern New Mexico Territory. Its primary purpose was to control the various Apache bands that roamed throughout the area.

Many of the general officers who served at Fort Fillmore became leading officers in the Confederacy and Union.

Its soldiers participated in the first Civil War conflict in the West - the Battle of Mesilla.

It was abandoned when Major Isaac Lynde led the U.S. Army forces up to San Augustine Springs where they surrendered to Texas Confederates.

The author discovered that the Fort Fillmore cemetery still contains burials.

About the Author:

Richard Wadsworth was born in Canton, Ohio. He received his B.S. in mathematics and physics from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1966. He worked as a computer programmer, analyst, and military war-game specialist for the United States Army for thirty-two years. Mr. Wadsworth retired and began to study United States military history in the nineteenth century - in effect shifting emphasis from the study of the most modern weapons systems available to a more primitive time when the musket, wagon, and horse were supreme. His area of concentration has been southern New Mexico from the end of the Mexican War to the beginning of the American Civil War, with emphasis on Fort Millard Fillmore, the first American military post in the of the southern Apache tribes.
