Fort Leavenworth

There are two year-round volksmarch events in Leavenworth.  I did the one that meanders through the fort.  The fort was established in 1847 and is the oldest fort in continuous operation west of the Missouri River.  The Santa Fe Trail came through here for a short period of time.  Eisenhower was one of the Command General Staff College's more illustrious graduates.
