FortNaco is the last of twelve border forts that extended from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California. These forts guarded the U.S. and Mexico border in the early 1900s. Pancho Villa, Black Jack Pershing, Geronimo, Charles Young, Victorio, Henry Flipper and the Buffalo Soldiers all roamed the border. These forts were established to bring order to the U.S.- Mexico border. Columbus, New Mexico, where Pancho Villa forces attacked in March 1916, was one of these forts.
FortNaco is the only one still standing, but it needs to be restored as soon as possible. We can save the fort if we act quickly before the weather can cause further damage. We toured the fort and believe that it is worth saving. Estimated cost is million dollars to restore and rebuild the fort. We have plans to restore the fort but we cannot do it alone. We need your help and support. You can learn more about FortNaco by clicking on the Link "The Battle of Naco", or go to http://raven.cc.ukans.edu/~kansite/ww_one/comment/huachuca/HI1-19.htm
