Fort Union National Monument

Saves: 17

Broken walls and remnants of wagons in this 1851 fort are the only pieces of its history throughout the Civil War and its post-war period. Still, the red adobe walls, weathered and worn, provide a fascinating backdrop in the sparse New Mexico environment. If you're in the Santa Fe area, this landmark is a short drive away.
