"Company B of the 125th United States Colored Infantry, under First Lt. James M. Kerr, established Fort Bayard on August 21, 1866. The location was a "beautiful situation on the eastern slope of the Pinos Altos Mountains," where wood, water, and forage was abundant (HQ Military Division of the Missouri 1876).  Along with those same lines, Maj. Gen. John Pope commanding officer of the Military Division of the Missouri recorded:
 
I have established only one new post on the Apache frontier, and that is located near the head of the Mimbres River, about one hundred and fifty miles west of the Rio Grande.  This post, with Fort Cummings at Cook Spring, Fort Selden on the Rio Grande, Fort Staton on the Bonito River between the Rio Grande and the Pecos, form a line of posts covering the southern frontier of New Mexico from the Apache Indians (Myers n.d.,p.808)
 
The 125th US Colored Troops was first organized at Louisville, Kentucky, between February and June of 1865. With the men enlisting for three years, they were sent west in 1866.  Individual companies were stationed at Forts Cummings, Bayard, and Pinos Altos.  By the end of August there were approximately 50 enlisted men at Fort Bayard, but by October of that year, the number had increased to more than 200 men."

"Regrettably, many of the accomplishments and sagas of African Americans, Native Americans, Mexican Americans and Asian Americans have never been told in book form. There is a need for the total history of the American West to be told so there will be a more complete picture. Members of these groups played a crucial role in the development of our nation, and the West is no exception," Art T. Burton, author of the books, "Black, Red and Deadly" and "Black, Buckskin and Blue"
