The Fort that Jehu Built

This is the Fort that Jehu Built:
Union Fort was built on Jehu & Sarah Cox’s farm in 1849. View Photos Here | The battle of Union Fort occurred nearly 150 years later when their great-grandson Marion Cox joined with Union residents in an effort to preserve their adobe home. It was demolished & a replica built nearby & Marion Cox came to be known as the ‘Honorary Mayor of Union Fort.’
This is Their Legacy:
Marion invites you to help remember our pioneer heritage with a bronze monument of Jehu & Sarah.
