FORT SAM HOUSTON " Horses from the Caisson Section of the U.S. Army Military Honors Platoon, escort a replica of a 1870s Four-Mule Army Escort Wagon April 5 through the sally port of the historic Quadrangle. The wagon is the newest piece in the Fort Sam Houston Museum and is scheduled to go on display once the museum moves to the Quadrangle 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 and was a common site at Fort Sam Houston 100 years ago.
