Fort Riley

Fort Riley is a United States Army installation located in North Central Kansas, on the Kansas River known as the Kaw, between Junction City and Manhattan. The Fort Riley Military Reservation covers 101,733 acres in Riley counties; the portion of the fort that contains housing development is part of the Fort Riley census-designated place, with a residential population of 7,761 as of the 2010 census. The fort has a daytime population of nearly 25,000; the ZIP Code is 66442. Fort Riley is named in honor of Major General Bennet C. Riley, who led the first military escort along the Santa Fe Trail; the fort was established in 1853 as a military post to protect the movement of people and trade over the Oregon and Santa Fe trails. In the years after the Civil War, Fort Riley served as a major United States Cavalry post and school for cavalry tactics and practice; the post was a base for skirmishes with Native Americans after the Civil War ended in 1865, during which time George A. Custer was stationed at the fort.

In 1887, Fort Riley became the site of the United States Cavalry School. The famous all-black 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments, the soldiers of which were called "Buffalo Soldiers", were stationed at Fort Riley at various times in the 19th and early 20th centuries. During World War I, the fort was home to 50,000 soldiers, it is sometimes identified as ground zero for the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, which its soldiers were said to have spread all over the world. Since the end of World War II, various infantry divisions have been assigned there. Most notably, from 1955 to 1996 the post was home to the famed 1st Infantry Division called "Big Red One". Between 1999–2006, the post was headquarters to the 24th Infantry Division and known as "America's Warfighting Center". In August 2006, the Big Red One relocated its headquarters to Fort Riley from Leighton Barracks, Germany. Camp Whitside is named in honor of Brigadier General Samuel M. Whitside, who served as commander of Company B, 6th Cavalry Regiment, at Fort Riley, between the years of 1871 and 1874.

These routes, a result of then-popular United States doctrine of "manifest destiny" in the middle of the 19th century, prompted increased American military presence for the protection of American interests in this unsettled territory.

During the 1850s, a number of military posts were established at strategic points to provide protection along these arteries of emigration and commerce. In the fall of 1852, a surveying party under the command of Captain Robert H. Chilton, 1st U. S. Dragoons, selected the junction of the Republican and Smoky Hill Rivers as a site for one of these forts; this location, approved by the War Department in January 1853, offered an advantageous location from which to organize and equip troops in protecting the overland trails. Surveyors believed the location near the center of the United States and named the site, Camp Center. During the late spring, three companies of the 6th Infantry occupied the camp and began construction of temporary quarters. On June 27, 1853, Camp Center became Fort Riley — named in honor of Maj. Gen. Bennet C. Riley, who had led the first military escort along the Santa Fe Trail in 1829; the "fort" took shape around a broad plain. The fort's design followed the standard frontier post configuration: buildings were constructed of the most available material — in this case, native limestone.

In the spring, troops were dispatched to escort mail trains and protect travel routes across the plains. At the fort, additional buildings were constructed under the supervision of Capt. Edmund Ogden. Anticipating greater utilization of the post, Congress authorized appropriations in the spring of 1855 to provide additional quarters and stables for the Dragoons. Ogden again marshaled resources and arrived from Leavenworth in July with 50 6-mule teams loaded with materials and laborers. Work had progressed for several weeks when cholera broke out among the workers; the epidemic claimed 70 lives, including Ogden's. Work resumed and buildings were readied for the arrival in October of the 2nd Dragoons; as the fort began to take shape, an issue soon to dominate the national scene was debated during the brief territorial legislative session which met at Pawnee in the present area of Camp Whitside, named for Col. Warren Whitside; the first territorial legislature met there in July 1855. Slavery was a fact of life and an issue within the garrison just as it was in the rest of the country.

The seeds of sectional discord were emerging that would lead to "Bleeding Kansas" and Civil War. Increased tension and bloodshed between pro and anti-slavery settlers resulted in the use of the Army to "police" the troubled territory, they continued to guard and patrol the Santa Fe Trail in 1859 and 1860 due to increased Indian threats.

Savior (Iggy Azalea song)

"Savior" is a song recorded by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea featuring American rapper Quavo. It was written by Azalea, Verse Simmonds, Akil King, Myjah Veira, Kyle Owens, Ian Devaney, Lisa Stansfield, Andy Morris, with production handled by Cirkut and Manhun Glow; the song was released via Island Records on 2 February 2018. It features an interpolation of co-writer Lisa Stansfield's 1989 single "All Around the World"; the song was first teased on 5 December 2016, with a brief snippet of the song playing on a private jet. That same day, a demo version was leaked featuring a guest appearance from Verse Simmonds instead of Quavo. On 9 January 2018, Azalea announced she would debut the single in a Super Bowl commercial for Monster Cable, she said in a Monster press conference at CES 2018 that the song would be released "around February 1st". She revealed the song's artwork through social media on 25 January, followed by short clips and behind the scene shots from the song's lyric video. A snippet was posted a day prior to its release, displaying its "island-themed instrumental".

She explained the meaning and purpose behind the song in a preview video, saying: "It is not a record about you needing a man or a woman to come and save you in a relationship, it's about you being your own savior and finding your own strength within yourself to figure it the fuck out. It's a hard record for me to have written and I think it's going to be one I struggle to perform, just'cause I'll wanna cry every single time." " was created at a time when I felt so stagnant & alone, but I just couldn't pick up the phone and admit to my closest friends how hopeless I felt," she wrote in a tweet. "So I hope I can connect with anyone else that's been/going thru it via this song." Dr. Luke was listed as a co-writer and co-producer of the song. Azalea declared via Twitter after causing public backlash, saying that the two producers of the song "have production agreements with Luke", that she is not affiliated with Luke nor working with him. Luke was subsequently removed from the credits, it was speculated Luke was being credited under a pseudonym.

Azalea stated she written the song because “I’d had a big breakup, my career wasn’t going well,”, referring to athlete Nick Young, who cheated on her. Nick Mojica of XXL wrote that the song was "made for dance floors with its tropical-inspired house beat". Rob Arcand of Spin felt that it features "a low, down-tempo house beat with Quavo at his most melodic, Auto-Tuned self as Iggy aims more for songwriting craftsmanship than rapping acumen this go round". On 16 March 2018, Azalea joined Demi Lovato on stage to perform "Savior", with Lovato singing the hook, during the latter's sold out headlining show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as a part of the Tell Me You Love Me World Tour. On 20 March 2018, Azalea performed "Savior" on The Late Late Show with James Corden alongside a choir-esque group of backup singers for the chorus; as Quavo did not perform the song with her, Azalea performed his parts of the song alongside her backup singers. Azalea performed the song with "newly pink" hair, as quoted by Billboard and an "all-black getup".

The music video for "Savior" was directed by Colin Tilley and was released on March 1, 2018. It takes place inside a "neon church" and features a plethora of religious imagery and symbolism such as neon halos and crosses, burning roses, a scene of Azalea being baptized.
