TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Fort Lowell Museum will soon be home to a new exhibit demonstrating how U.S. Army troops in Southern Arizona ate during the Apache Wars.

The Arizona Historical Society says a grant will fund A Bite To Eat, a display featuring photographs and artifacts examining the people who provided, prepared, cooked and supplied Army troops across Arizona.

The grant comes from the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) and the Arizona Society Daughters of the American Revolution (ASDAR).

Fort Lowell was an U.S. Army post from 1873 to 1891. It supplied all troops south of the Gila River and provided troops to protect settlers from Apacheraiders.

The Arizona Historical Society plans to open the new exhibit in April of 2014.
