It was the scene of imprisonment of Ute Indians who made the mistake of interpreting their new citizenship status as freedom from government control. ------- The fort survived the mechanization of the horse cavalry, aided the record-breaking Stratosphere Balloon flight of 1935, and became a training site for the nation's first airborne troops.
