Thanks mainly to the work of Turners Scott and Patti House and Bill Eddleman of Cape Girardeau, that city’s Fort D historic site has been named to the National Register of Historic Places as a site of state-level significance. Fort D is the last surviving of four Union forts built to protect Cape Girardeau from Confederate attack during the Civil War. Fort D has special significance due to its connection to engineer John Wesley Powell, who was charged by Gen. U. S. Grant with completing the fortifications around Cape Girardeau. After the Civil War, Powell became famous for his exploration of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon.
