In March of 1863, the legendary Kit Carson first moved subjugated Mescalero Indians to Bosque Redondo, where a new reservation and outpost was being established near the Pecos River - the first incarnation of Fort Sumner. The summer, fall and winter, Carson campaigned relentlessly against the stronger Navajos. By the summer of 1864, Carson's scorched-earth campaign had led to almost 8,000 defeated Navajos surrendering at Fort Defiance and Fort Wingate. Gen. Carleton ordered these bands forcibly escorted in the summer of 1864 to the newly established Fort Sumner. Dr. George Courtright was part of the new garrison troops sent to Fort Sumner from Fort Union.

Fort Webster was established in Oct. 1851, occupying a Mexican fort built in 1834 by Francisco Elguea to protect the Santa Rita copper mines. It was abandoned in 1853 and its troops transferred to Fort Thorn. This is the only known cover to or from Fort Webster. It is believed the cover was originally sent out-of-mails to Henry, and then re-used by him; by not crossing out the first address, it served as an effective return address.
