011549-Imprint on the Land-Life before Camp Hood, 1820-1942 189 Pages2001 This volume endeavors to paint a very big picture in a small space-from the geological formation of Texas to the present day. Although the inhabitants with the longest connection to Fort Hood lands were Native Americans, their 10,000-year story does not receive its due here, and must await closer attention in a future volume. Instead, this book focuses on the Euro-American peoples who came to Fort Hood lands in the late 1840s. It gives some reasons for when and why they chose this place, then relates the trials, challenges, and victories they experienced over the next hundred years, ending with their removal during World War II. Throughout this book, Austin historian/writer Bill Pugsley attempts to fit the story of Euro-American settlement into a broader context. He shows how world and national events shaped Bell and Coryell Counties and how circumstances in the two counties impacted the farms, ranches, and rural communities on Fort Hood lands.
