Frontier Forts. The U. S. Army established nine principal forts in Kansas during the 19th century.

They fought five blood-soaked wars and continuously provoked various Indian tribes to raise arms against each other's subjects for the mastery of the land. The last French and Indian War, from to , would dwarf all previous conflicts in the number of troops 5/5(1). There are literally hundreds of old forts across the nation, ranging from military posts to fortresses established by fur trading companies, to private enterprises built solely to protect the pioneers within. Though many of these old forts are long gone, there are dozens of others that continue to stand, some restored, some in ruins, and others still currently serving as active posts.
