Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 12 Early Fort Macleod The most westerly outpost of constitu- tional authority established by the NWMP on their March West was at a point on Old Man's River near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Here in mid-October 1874 150 men led by then-Assistant Commissioner James F. Macleod established Fort Macleod. The approach of winter required that con- struction of the fort be started without delay. By the following summer much of the fort's construction had been completed including the main barracks building. The long struc- ture faced onto the parade ground where an NWMP troop is seen here lined up for inspection. The NWMP's artillery detach- ment with its two nine-pounder guns was part of the force that established Fort Mac- leod in 1874. The guns were of the rnuzzle- loading type and fired a shell a distance of 3500 yards with considerable accuracy. Each gun had a crew of eight men as seen here on the parade ground of Fort Macleod.
