Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields
A short lived emergency
post, it was established in early March 1852, about 30 miles
south southwest of Fort Yuma by Major Edward H. Fitzgerald when
he and his 40 dragoons were attacked by some 200 Indians. The
outnumbered soldiers, four of them killed in the action, retreated
to a hill and dug in. The camp apparenntlly lasted but one day.
