sites in Texas have been judged eligible for the Registry of
National Historic Landmarks: Fort Belknap, Fort Concho, and
Fort Davis. Other Texas sites described are Adobe Walls Battle-
field; Forts Clark, Griffin, Lancaster, McKavett, Richardson, and
Stockton; and Palo Duro Canyon Battlefield.

Utley, southwest regional historian for the National Park Serv-
ice, an exceptionally able historian, who served as an editorial

based on the work of the National Park Service. Subsequent
volumes will treat other broad phases of American history as
commemorated in surviving historic sites and buildings.
