Fort Supply Historic Site
Fort Supply, OK 73841
Established as Camp Supply in 1868 in the western part of the Cherokee Outlet, this supply base served General Philip Sheridan's winter campaign against hostile Indian tribes of the southern Great Plains. The fort was also responsible for protecting the Cheyenne and Arapaho Reservations from incursions by whites, and for protecting travelers and southern Kansas from hostile tribes. During the famous Battle of Camp Supply, the garrison was joined by troops from the Buffalo Soldier all-black Tenth Cavalry, making the fort an interesting piece of African-American history as well.
