On June 1, 1878 Lieutenant Colonel Luther P. Bradley and 520 men of the 9th United States Infantry left Fort Laramie following the Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage route to the Black Hills. Their mission was to construct a telegraph line between Deadwood and Fort Keogh, thus tying together Montana, Wyoming, and Dakota Territories. At the conclusion of a 30-day march they established a summer bivouac on June 30, 1878, and named it Camp Devin for Brevet Brigadier General Thomas C. Devin, the late commander of the 3rd U.S. Cavalry, who had died on April 4, 1878. The camp had a life of only two months. Although the existence of the camp was short, its occupants fulfilled their mission. The completed telegraph line resulted in improved communications between forts and white settlements, opening the way for domestication of northeast Wyoming.[1]


Camp Devin is located at an unknown location in present-day southeastern Carter County, Montana near the Census-designated place of Alzada, Montana, near the Little Missouri River. Just outside Alzada near the Montana-Wyoming Border on Montana Highway 326 there is a historical marker giving information about Camp Devin.

List of secondary highways in Montana

Secondary Highways in Montana are a lower-level classification of state highway maintained by the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) in the US state of Montana.

The highway markers for Montana's S routes are distinctive in that the route number appears in black on a white down-pointing arrowhead. (Early markers were white numbers on black arrowheads with the word Montana in the flat top of the inverted arrowhead and Secondary appearing below the route number on the shields.)

S routes first appeared on the state highway map in 1960, even though the secondary system was established in 1942. With very few exceptions (i.e. MT 287, former MT 789), S routes are exclusively numbered 201 and higher.
