Abstract or Summary
  • Fort Hoskins, located in Kings Valley, Oregon, was a U.S. Army post established in 1856 and decommissioned in April 1865. In 1992, the site of Fort Hoskins went into the public trust as a Benton County Park. Developing an interpretive center for the park will necessitate ground disturbing activities on the site of the Fort Hoskins Infirmary. Accordingly, in 1993 and 1994, archaeological testing was conducted at this location to determine the potential impact such work will have on the archaeological resources associated with the Infirmary. This thesis examines military medicine at Fort Hoskins and provides a basis for comparison with other similar archaeological sites. American and military medicine during the Civil War period is discussed to provide a broad context within which to interpret operational practice and procedure at Fort Hoskins. Data on sick and wounded at Fort Hoskins is utilized to form a picture of the everyday life and health of soldiers at the post. The general and site specific contexts developed are used to analize the artifact assemblage and provides a valuable source of information regarding medical practice and potential distribution and location of further archaeological resources at Fort Hoskins.
