Named for Captain Henry W. Stanton, Fort Stanton was established May 4, 1855 as a
military fort to protect settlers from Apache attacks. Operated as a military fortification until 1896, it played a part in the Civil War, was the first Tuberculosis Hospital in New Mexico, was an internment camp for German seamen during World War II, and is known for heroes such as Kit Carson, Black Jack Pershing, Buffalo Soldiers of the 8th and 9th Cavalry, and the notorious Billy the Kid. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Fort Stanton oversees thousands of acres surrounding the fort.
