"Fort Abraham Lincoln. Fort Abraham Lincoln, of which we give a picture from a photograph by Barry, is a post-office and military post, situated in Morton County, Dakota, on the west bank of the Missouri River, some five miles below Bismarck. this fort is the great depot of supplies for posts on the Yellowstone River, and is usually garrisoned by both cavalry and infantry. Being near one of the great lines of transcontinental travel, and within easy reach of one of the larges towns of the Territory, the fort possesses attractions to military men which are not found in more isolated stations, l and life there, even during the winter season, is by no means without enjoyment of a genuine sort." - Text (p. 407) accompanying image.
