An Army supply wagon is parked in front of "captains' row" during a living history event at Fort McKavett. This row of officers quarters was constructed during the Army's occupation of the fort after the Civil War. They are generally more spacious, and have better ventilation, than the pre-war quarters. During the post-war occupation, the pre-war quarters typically were assigned to lower-ranking officers, and are referred to as "lieutenants' row." Photo by John Cobb.
