Abstract or Summary
  • Fort Yamhill, located in the eastern foothills of the Oregon Coast Range near modern day Grand Ronde, Oregon, was a U.S. Army post established in March 1856 as part of a three fort system to guard the newly established Coast Reservation and to provide a Union presence in the state during the American Civil War. This thesis examines U.S. Army foodways at Fort Yamhill and provides a basis for future work on the subject. Combining the archaeological and archival data from the site provided the unique opportunity to examine the foodways of the mid-19th century U.S. Army holistically. Results of this research suggests that although the soldiers stationed at Fort Yamhill were at the end of long supply lines and far from populated cities, the diet consumed by the soldiers was adequate and often abundant. Procuring subsistence stores from many sources soldiers were able to procure a steady and healthful diet and often had the opportunity to display social and economic status through their patterns of food consumption.
