The Cabin-Row Fort

One type of Mormon fortification built as defense during Utah's Black Hawk War.


We don't have records indicating that any of our Morgan or Radford families lived in forts but they were involved in building Fort Deseret and probably lived near and had contact with other forts. The book "Utah's Black Hawk War" by John Alton Peterson lists an altercation in Manti, Utah during the winter of 1864-65 as the beginning of the war, which wound down in 1872-73. As the problems with Indian hositilities escalated some Mormon communities that could not be defended against Indians were abandoned and others were fortified. After 1873 the fortifications fell into disuse and were torn down to salvage building materials.
