Assigned To Key West

Key West Bks Fla
April 8, 1861

I have the honor to report myself on duty at Fort Taylor and Key West Bks, Fla., in obedience to verbal orders received from Asst. Surgeon Clinton Wagner, U.S. Army...

"In 1861 the government began the construction of two Martello towers on the water's edge...". 

I left the Camp at Greenlake, Texas, with Captain King's Command on board of the steamer Catracoalcos [Coatzacoalcos]...
