The post continued to be garrisoned until 1889, well after hostile Plains Indians posed any threat to the area. The presence of the military made it safe for ranchers to venture into the Concho Valley, where they formed the small community of Santa Angela, which survived the departure of the soldiers and grew into the town of San Angelo.First published by the SAN ANGELO STANDARD-TIMES in 1952, FORT CONCHO AND THE TEXAS FRONTIER quickly went out of print.

With a new introduction by nationally known San Angelo Western novelist Elmer Kelton and a new foreword by Austin writer and book critic Mike Cox, Haleys exhaustively researched book has ben reprinted by his son, J. Evetts Haley of Midland.
