Constructed in 1867

Officers at Fort Wadsworth were assigned and relieved of their commissions with almost monotonous regularity. Some lasted a month or less, while others often returned to their commands.

Andrew often hoped his company would be reassigned to a more civilized area, "...for I must say that of all the places I was ever station, this is the meanest."
Journal Entry

Sat. Feb. 10, 1866. Whoop Whoop Hurrah Hurrah! Received orders today to proceed without delay to "Sauk Centre", Minnesota, and report for duty. Great rejoicing and jubilee. Whoever heard of such good luck.
