The History of Fort Meade, South Dakota
History of Fort Meade from its beginning at Camp Sturgis in 1876. Fort Meade came very much into the limelight when its Fourth Cavalry furnished the Presidential Guard while the President was vacationing in the Black Hills.
Soldiers whose good fortune it is to be assigned to Fort Meade, South Dakota, home of the Fourth Cavalry, and once one of the largest mounted stations in the country, have the privilege of serving their enlistments in a post at once pleasant as to environment and replete with historic lore - a post with a past, in a word, but a past in which glory and records of momentous events in our early frontier history play the predominating role.
The fort, today, established in its present location in 1877, had its beginning a year earlier at another location eight miles distant, called Camp Sturgis, hard by the foot of Bear Butte, one of the historic landmarks of the South Dakota Black Hills. In those days the frontier was everything that the name suggests, and a bit more too.
Camp Sturgis was founded in 1876, the year following Custer's famous fight, and was named in honor of Lieutenant Sturgis, who fell in that gallant fight…

ACCOUNT OF CHARLES A. SIRINGO
Siringo, who was born in Texas and who gained fame as a hunter of outlaws, rode in the saddle on drives over the old Chisholm trail of Kansas. Later he punched Texas longhorns throughout the Panhandle country, where many a wild and wooly Western story had its inception.
But it was a train ride 42 years ago that turned the tide in Siringo's life. A cattle train took the plainsman to Chicago, where his experience as a cowboy gained him a place with the Pinkerton Detective Agency.
From Chicago, the Pinkertons sent him to Denver. Some of his better known exploits against the lawless characters of the Western plains followed.
Mentions: Siringo fought the "Wild Bunch," * "Billy the Kid," * "A Lone Star Cowboy," "Fifteen Years on the Back of a Spanish Pony," "The Life of Billy the Kid" "A Cowboy Detective," "Riata and Spur." * Mrs.. A. D. Gentry, Fort Stockton, Texas *
