January 4th, 1871
"Henry Vallandigham von Kauffman, Colonel of the Fifth Cavalry and now Acting Commander of all troops deployed at Fort Bowie"
The words rang in my head like a shotgun blast. 4 years of service in the Great Rebellion, 147 confirmed Confederate Kills, a medal from Andrew E. Burnside himself after Cumberland, and a missing finger have finally given me everything I sought as a child. At only 29 years of age, the son of a poor Dutch Immigrant had become a Lt. Colonel in the United States Military, and control of almost every U.S. soldier this side of the Colorado River. I had finally made a name for myself. I shall begin to keep a journal of all daily events around the Fort, and all incursions with enemy apache forces. Major General Buchanan suffered a heart attack at age 65, and died peacefully in his bed last Monday. I have assumed his position under the order of President Ulysses S Grant. My duty is to pacify the natives to make peaceful expansion in the Arizona and Colorado Territories as smooth as possible. And I will stop at nothing to achieve this.
