Abstract or Summary
  • Fort Hoskins is located near Kings Valley, approximately 16 miles from Corvallis. The Fort, built after the Rogue Wars of the 1850s, was intended to safeguard the newly created Indian reserves. During its' ten-years of existence, U.S. Army Regulars manned the Fort from 1856-1861 while volunteers from California, Washington, and Oregon were present from 1861-1865. Life at Fort Hoskins was similar to other peacetime forts, regimented and void of battle heroics. The research problem concerns determining military status and authority as revealed in the archaeological record. The data used was the archaeological material from the excavated site of Fort Hoskins. Artifacts were categorized into a functional classification scheme. Assemblages for the artifact categories produced proportional frequencies providing a method in which to compare differences or similarities between the officers and enlisted men. Fort Hoskins artifacts reveal greater status differences in the Personal and Domestic categories between the two groups. The Military Defense category reveals limited differences to substantiate authority.
