This panel tells the tale of how three men kidnapped two Native-American women. The kidnappers were killed by Native-Americans and the women were released, but newspapers sensationalized the story resulting in vigilantes seeking revenge for the deaths of the three kidnappers. Bloodshed ensued, and eventually the army was sent to make a permanent presence in the region. The wealth coming from the Comstock Lode in nearby Virginia City was also a major reason for the fort being built

The huge cost of building the fort ($179,000) in 1860 illustrates the point of just how much the government was willing to spend to protect the Comstock Lode. Tension between Northern and Southern states was boiling, so Northern leaders were quick to see the fort erected in order to protect this vital source of revenue
