Plaque Text:

The army ambulance, used by the Medical Department at military posts, was also a common form of transportation for officers and their families in the 19th century. Four mules usually pulled an ambulance, which was equipped with leather seats and a canvas top.

Fort Davis typically had one to three ambulances. The wagon on display is believed to be a modification of either an army ambulance or a Dougherty spring wagon.
