: This exhibit highlights the event which led to changes in  how military justice is administered today. The Camp Logan Munity/Houston Riot of 1917 is a part of United States history and reflects the domestic social and political issues of a country divided along a color line. Plessy v. Ferguson legalized segregation in all aspects of life, even in matters of defending the country. The mutiny and subsequent riot influenced Houston’s social/political transition during the Civil Rights Movement resulting in Houston’s celebrated diverse society and culture as the fourth largest city in the nation.
