    Large size Photograph Whipple Barracks, Arizona Territory ca 1890s. Fort Whipple was established in November 1863 one-mile northeast of Prescott in the Chino Valley after Camp Clark was abandoned. Cavalry and Infantry soldiers stationed there participated in many Indian engagements. The Whipple Barracks became the Headquarters for the Military Department of Arizona on April 15, 1870. The post was General George Crook's District of Arizona headquarters in 1882. Centrally located in the state, the fort had a major influence on all Indian affairs in the region. The old post was condemned in 1869; all the buildings were torn down and rebuilt. Post was discontinued in 1898 and re-garrisoned in 1902.

Inside the Whipple Barracks compound. Very nice printed back mark for this photographer. Measures approximately 8.50" x 5.25".
