    Camp Robinson was one of several army posts established to protect Indian agencies. For the first four years, the post provided security for nearby Red Cloud Agency. The soldiers also guarded the Sidney-Deadwood Trail to the Black Hills and the surrounding region. Although the agency was moved in 1877, Camp Robinson remained. As an indication of its permanent status, the designation "Camp" was changed to "Fort" in 1878. In the winter of 1890 attention turned to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation with the Ghost Dance movement. The army was called in to monitor the volatile situation. The first soldiers sent to Pine Ridge were from Fort Robinson. Soldiers from the post were also sent to help quell several outbreaks of civil disorder during the 1890s. From 1885 through 1907 the majority of the troops stationed at Fort Robinson were African American.I n the winter of 1890 attention turned to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation with the Ghost Dance movement.
