1885-1900 Western Federal Cavalry.

I am researching and documenting the life of my gg grandfather, General Robert EL Michie.


He spent a lot of time in the west. 
- Fort Boise 1885-1890. 
- ft Lowell AZ 1890-1891 (going to a museum in Tucson at the end of January- fingers crossed)

- ft wingate NM 1891-1884, 1897-1898

- ft Riley KS 1892-1897

- presidio of sante fe 1890

How /where can I find more info? 

thanks!

    Administrative records for Camp Del Rio are located in the National Archives in Record Group 393 Records of U.S. Army Continental Commands, Part V (Military Installations). We have searched the National Archives Catalog and have located the following series: Name and Subject Indexes to Letters, Endorsements, and Telegrams Sent, 1885-1891; Letters, Endorsements, and Telegrams Sent, 1879-1891; Name Indexes to Registers of Letters Received, 1885-1891; Registers of Letters and Telegrams Received and Endorsements Received, 1879-1891; Special Orders, Post Orders, and Orders, 1876-1891; and Issuances, 1918-1920. We do not know why we have so few records for the period when the post was regarrisoned between 1911 and 1922.

    If you would like to look at these series, we welcome you to visit us in Washington, D.C. Research at the National Archives is currently by appointment only. For more information about our facility as well as instructions on how to schedule a research visit, please go to our web page: https://www.archives.gov/dc.

    The War Department did not create service records for individuals who served in the Regular Army until 1914. Since Michie served after 1914, a service record would have been created for him. This record would be in the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, if it was not lost in the 1973 Fire. For more information regarding ordering these records, please see https://www.archives.gov/veterans.

    It is possible that there are administrative records relating to his military service in the National Archives facility in College Park, Maryland (email: archives2reference@nara.gov).
