Cav Trooper


Anyone who is interested in the history of the Cavalry in the US Army should visit the Cavalry Museum at Fort Riley, KS. Located about 2 hours west of Kansas City...it's well worth a visit for you history buffs out there.

Above is a statue based on Fredrick Remington's drawing "Old Bill". Located at the base of the statue is the grave of the last Cavalry horse assigned to the US Army. "Chief" passed away in 1968.
