Forts in the West – Fort MacLeod


When the Dominion of Canada purchased the Northwest Territories (present day Saskatchewan and Alberta) the first thing that was established is law and order.  A new police force, the North West Mounted Police (present day known as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) established the first fort at Fort Macleod in Southern Alberta in 1873.Fort MacLeod - BuffaloFort MacLeod - ChurchFort MacLeod - Getting ready for Musical Ride
