Cemetery notes and/or description:
Fort Yellowstone was originally named Camp Sheridan. Camp Sheridan was established August 17, 1886 within Yellowstone National Park on Beaver Creek near Mammoth Hot springs. It was built by Capt. Moses Harris, 1st U.S. Cavalry and named after Lieutenant General Phillip Sheridan. The purpose of the post was to protect the park, enforce gaming laws and guard the area from vandals and commercial entities that might damage the natural wonders. On May 11, 1891 the name of the Camp was officially changed to Fort Yellowstone and in 1918 the fort was abandoned.
