After hiking the Argentina Canyon Trail we headed out to take a tour of Spencer Theater. We were about an hour early so we continued on toward Fort Stanton. Before reaching Ft. Stanton we arrived at this Cemetery and stopped to look around.
When I looked it up on Google I learned that Fort Stanton was acquired by the U.S. Public Health Service in 1899. It was here that sailors and merchant mariners were sent for treatment of Tuberculosis. 1,500 of whom are buried in the Maritime Cemetery on a hillside overlooking the Fort.
