Camp Walbach Nebraska Territory, 1858-1859: The Military Post At Cheyenne Pass.
Camp Walback was a United States Army garrison southwest of Fort Laramie on the Fort Riley - Bridger's Pass Road. The road, originally proposed as a "more direct route west from the Missouri River settlements," was felt to require a United States Army presence because of the deteriorating relationship between Mormons and federal officials in the Territory of Utah. Brevet Major Thomas Williams commanded the post to protect the War Department's supply line to the Army of Utah. Named after Brigadier General John De B. Walbach, the post was located on Cheyenne Pass, a desolate and hostile part of Nebraska Territory in 1858. Short of a year the post was removed because the road was determined unfit due to lack of food and water and the Mormon War had petered out.

Cheapness And Durability: The Search For Appropriate Building Materials In The Department Of The Platte, 1866-1890
The U. S. Army built more than 300 posts in the American West during the nineteenth century. The building program developed from poorly planned and poorly built structures to long-lasting brick structures that stand as an edifice to the creative solutions that grew from the Army's efforts. Those structures within the Department of the Platte provide an excellent example of the 30-40 years of building military structures.
