Fort Craig was established in 1853 and garrisoned in 1854 with troops from Fort Conrad located about nine miles north. Named after Capt. Louis S. Craig, it was used to control Indian raids along the Jornada del Muerto. Troops from Fort Craig were defeated in 1865 by Confederates at the Battle of Valverde, 7 miles distant. Between 1863 and 1865 it was headquarters for campaigns against the Gila and Mimbres Apache.
