Bliss Museum 7-1-09 a-i
The Fort Bliss Museum is located on Main Post near the Marshall Gate off Fred Wilson Road. When I was stationed at Bliss in the late 1960s, the missiles on display were scattered around the Reception Area on Main Post. Since these pictures were taken, some have been moved to another post altogether.

Fort Bliss, in 1846, Colonel Alexander Doniphan led 1st Regiment of Missouri mounted volunteers through El Paso del Norte, with victories at the Battle of El Brazito and the Battle of the Sacramento. Then on 7 November 1848, War Department General Order no. 58 ordered the establishment of a post across from El Paso del Norte now Ciudad Juárez. On 8 September 1849, the garrison party of several companies of the 3rd U.S. Infantry ('The Old Guard', currently the oldest active duty regiment in the US Army), commanded by Major Jefferson Van Horne, found only four small and scattered settlements on the north side of the Rio Grande. The Post opposite El Paso del Norte was first established at the site of Coon's Ranch, protected recently won territory from harassing Apaches and Comanches, provided law and order, and escorted the forty-niners. (The post became Fort Bliss on 8 March 1854.)

Image Description: Black and white photograph of volunteers in horse drawn carriages. The image is taken at a turn where a large line of carriages can be seen in the distance. A couple telegraph lines are in the background alongside a house and mountains in the far distance.

They hold rifles in their left hand and rest them on their shoulder as thy march with the American flag among them. Behind the soldiers stand a building and a small corner of another building with people standing to view the volunteers march through.
