Regarding Fort Huachuca. Fort Huachuca was designated as a National Historic Landmark on May 11, 1976:
Statement of Significance:
Founded in 1877, this cavalry outpost played a prominent role in subduing the last significant Indian group ranging free of reservation restraints: The Chiracahua Apache led by Geronimo. Fort Huachuca also served as headquarters for the Army's four all-Black regiments. The fort survives today as an active military installation.
