There are so many things that make El Paso unique. Here is the history behind one of them.

El Paso has many things you can really only find here like a stadium carved into a mountain, a beautiful mountain range and an international border just to name a couple.

Here are a few fun facts about one of those cool, "915 only" things, Fort Bliss, Texas. A military post named after William Bliss, POTUS Zachary Taylor's son in law.

Last one. Fort Bliss wasn't always under control of the United States military.

During the Civil War it was briefly seized by the Confederate States of America and was under control of Southern forces until Texas rejoined the Union after the war's end..
