F Troop 17th Cavalry Website would like to thank James Maxson for his contribution of the following photographs.  They depict his grandfather, Norman D. Smith, a trooper in the 17th Cavalry, ca. 1916, in locations including Ft. Huachuca AZ and along the Mexican border.     These are historic and fascinating photos taken during the formation of the 17th Cavalry.
