Two civilian scouts (A.L. Grover and Thomas O'Donnell)  are buried in the Fort Wallace Cemetery. Two long rows of wooden grave markers sit on the civilian side of the cemetery.  All military graves were reinstated to Leavenworth in 1885. Sometimes justice comes only after death. John Ranch (left) is buried next to the man who murdered him, John Langford (right). Langford was killed by a vigilance committee shortly after he killed Ranch.
