In the year 2271, the Desert Rangers of Nevada and rangers of the New California Republic met at this spot to sign the Ranger Unification Treaty.Message box transcription - Mojave Outpost

The Unification Monument is an unmarked location in the Mojave Wasteland.

Background

Located near a pre-War checkpoint between Nevada and California, the tall monument is the most visible and distinctive feature of the Mojave Outpost, commemorating the historic merging of Nevada's Desert Rangers and the New California Republic Rangers in 2271.[1][2][3]

After the rangers realized they could not protect the Mojave alone against the forces of Caesar's Legion,[4] the checkpoint became a historic site as the Desert Rangers of Nevada and the New California Republic Rangers signed the Ranger Unification Treaty in 2271.[5] After the two forces merged into one, in exchange for NCR extending its jurisdiction to southern Nevada, New Vegas, and the Hoover Dam, the monument was built.[5]

The pair of statues depicting the rangers now stands tall at the edge of the outpost, memorializing the treaty and now mark the boundary of territory controlled by the NCR.[3][5]

Layout

The monument is located immediately outside of the outpost along Interstate 15. It can be seen from nearly any location in the Ivanpah Valley. A plaque below describes the monument's significance. The monument serves as a useful landmark for navigating the desert, lit up at night, and easily visible in the distance to those who pass through the valley below. Sgt. Kilborn can be found patrolling in front of the monument, near the Mojave Outpost sign, and can be spoken with to complete the quest Cold, Cold Heart.

Notes

The monument can be seen in the faraway distance from the Long 15.

    The place where the Mojave Outpost now stands was originally a checkpoint between California and Nevada. After the war, it stood empty and vacant for well over a century. Ten years ago, the NCR Rangers and the Desert Rangers of Nevada (who have been dwindling in numbers) met at what had become known as the I-15 Mojave Outpost, to establish terms of the Ranger Unification Treaty. In its current form, Mojave Outpost serves as the link between NCR and the Mojave Wasteland."

  4. Courier: "Why are the rangers here?"
    Hanlon: "There's a lot of answers to that question, but it started with the Ranger Unification Treaty. We weren't always the only show in town. Nevada had its own posse, the Desert Rangers. They fought Caesar even farther east, out in Arizona. Didn't go well for them. Years back, we met with the Desert Rangers at Mojave Outpost and agreed to help them against Caesar if they would join the NCR."
