The establishment of Fort Knox unintentionally helped create at least one singing cowboy — possibly two.
Back in 1918, when Bob Atcher was just 4, the government bought tens of thousands of acres for the new Camp Knox. These purchases included the Atchers’ family farm.
So they moved to North Dakota, where young Bob learned cowboy songs from ranch hands and how to play the guitar, according to Internet Movie Database. Now he could accompany his father, a skilled fiddle player.
