Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

Fort Leavenworth is a United States Army installation located in Leavenworth County, Kansas.

"Built in 1827, it is the oldest active United States Army post west of Washington, D.C. and the oldest permanent settlement in Kansas."

"During the country's westward expansion, Fort Leavenworth was a forward destination for thousands of soldiers, surveyors, immigrants, American Indians, preachers and settlers who passed through.

On August 1, 1846, a Mormon Battalion, led by Col. James Allen, arrived at Fort Leavenworth. Colonel Allen became ill and died at the fort; his headstone marks his grave at the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery."
