Fort Davis National Historic Site

5/20/2004 Drove a bit into the mountains to Fort Davis NHS [NHL]. Saw the remains and reconstructions of the fort used to protect the Overland Route from Indians and later during the Civil War. Saw a film at the visitor center and walked the grounds. Very picturesque setting at the base of rugged mountains. Also heard periodic bugle calls in the order they would have been played originally.
