The brush arbor was located in this general area and was used for a dining area for the troops at Ft. Blair. The colored troops were having lunch here when Quantrill's attackers approached from both the east and the south. The troops made their way through the mounted guerillas to the fort in order to retrieve their weapons and display their expert marksmanship, fearlessly defending the small camp and keeping the stars and stripes flying above Ft. Blair
