A must see for Leavenworth
Always a blessing to be on Fort Leavenworth. You do need a pay pass to get in, but it is an Army installation, so just get a day pass and enjoy Merit lake, free movies on the weekends, the museum, the historical markers all over fort, the buffalo soldier memorial park....

No access if you are not American
2019年12月 • 家庭
Wasted journey to go see the #1 thing to do in Leavenworth as you need to be a US Citizen to get access. Took our European ID, made us wait and then finally told us that we couldn’t go in. Surely they should have a sign, or at least the first person you speak to should let you know...

Buffalo Soldiers, Incarceration, and grooming Army Leaders
On a recent business trip to the oldest active United States Army post and oldest permanent settlement in Kansas, I had the opportunity to explore the installation and see the historical architecture, the old military Disciplinary Barracks complex, and the tribute to the African-American soldiers of the U.S 10th Cavalry Regiments of the United States Army.

As I explored the installation and realizing it was built in 1827, it was easy to imagine what life on the Fort must have been like during the tumultuous period of the expansion westward and the conflicts with the Native American tribes. Driving into the now decommissioned United States Disciplinary Barracks (at one point the Department of Defenses’ only maximum security prison) gave perspective to Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen being court martialed and sentenced to serve a sentence such as Second Lieutenant William Calley for his violations of the Uniform Code of Justice (UCMJ) in his actions at the 1968 My Lai Massacre in Vietnam.

Today the Disciplinary Barracks is gone and the United States Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC) is the focus of this historically significant Fort.

If in the area, I would highly recommend visiting the historical Fort.

So much history
I was stunned by the vastness of this installation. It's huge. I so enjoyed driving around and seeing the many historical buildings and sites. Highlight was certainly the Oregon and Santa Fe Trail origins right next to the Missouri River. Buffalo Soldier Monument is also very neat. I only stopped here because i was driving through, but I am so glad I did. Very, very cool.

Fort Leavenworth is History Come Alive
I had contacted Deb Goodrich, our Friend and Recognized Kansas Historian, before we left, if she had any suggestions what to see and she gave us some suggestions and we saw things that were unplanned for as we went to Fort Leavenworth. “Fort Leavenworth is History Come Alive”.

Getting into Fort Leavenworth takes a Security Check. We we able to proceed through the Main Gate. We saw the Buffalo Soldiers Statue among other recognition plaques, and other statues.

We proceeded to the Frontier Army Museum that was established in 1938 which Deb Goodrich had recommended that we see. We saw many displays and Deb had encouraged us to, especially, see Lincoln’s Carriage [We had seen a Lincoln Carriage at the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota that was pulled by “a horse of a different color”] when he was in Kansas, Custer’s Sleigh which he had built, and Grant’s cannon which he pulled during the Mexican War.

Kansas made an impression on Lincoln. A few months later, when asked if he would advise someone to “go west,” Lincoln replied: “If I went West, I think I would go to Kansas--to Leavenworth or Atchison. Both of them are, and will continue to be, fine growing places.” We saw the first two but not Grant's cannon.

We ate at the12th Brick Grill in Fort Leavenworth, but we had trouble finding it. [I wish something indicating where the 12th Brick Grill was located was clearer.] My wife, finally, found a sign in the window on the entry way into the old prison indicating the presence of the 12th Brick Grill inside the building. In our search for 12th Brick Grill, though, we saw different things like the stables and the Fort Leavenworth Memorial Chapel as well as the Missouri River.

We, finally, found the 12th Brick Grill inside the old prison and had dinner/lunch. I had the “Cell Block Special” Sandwich and Dixie had the Barney Sandwich. It was neat to have dinner/lunch with the BRAVE individuals, Male and Female, that are serving our GREAT country. I hope you will plan on dining there, too, when you are in Fort Leavenworth. The prices are reasonable for the food and the atmosphere was very special eating with our military personnel.

We decided not to tour the old prison and saved it for another visit and decided to come home. There is so much to see at Fort Leavenworth that it is going to take a person several visits to see all that there is to see.

If you ever get the chance to see Leavenworth, Lansing, and Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, “DON’T MISS THEM!

Family Oriented Installation
2019年7月 • 商务型
Fort Leavenworth is one of the few Army bases that focuses on family time. Although many are there for a short time, it is deemed a memorable location for soldiers and their families due in large part to the well-manicured lawns and housing areas, plethora MWR activities and of course proximity to the Greater Kansas City (KS and MO) areas. Winter are harsh but summers are pleasant.
