    Large size Photograph: Bird's-Eye View of Fort Apache, Arizona Territory, 1897. Established as Camp Ord in spring of 1870, named in honor of General O.C. Ord, Commander of Arizona. This post changed its name to Camp Mogollon August 1, 1870, then Camp Thomas September 12, 1870 in honor of Major General George W. Thomas, the "Rock of Chickamauga" of Civil War fame. The post was finally designated Camp Apache on February 2, 1871 as a token of friendship with the nearby tribe. Renamed Fort Apache April 5, 1879 and gained great significance after many tribes were gathered in the nearby San Carlos Reservation.
