FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas " A replica of a 1870s Four-Mule Army Escort Wagon passes by the clock tower of the historic Quadrangle April 5. The wagon, pulled by two horses from the Caisson Section of the U.S. Army Military Honors Platoon, is the newest item in the Fort Sam Houston Museum and is slated to go on display in the Quadrangle once the museum moves there early 2014. It can be used by U.S. Army North (Fifth Army) during parades and other public events. This type of wagon was used by the Army to carry supplies from post to post and around post; it was a common site at Fort Sam Houston 100 years ago.
