Abstract
  • Fort Hoskins, located in Kings Valley, Oregon, was established in 1856 as one of three forts to monitor the newly created Coastal Indian Reservation. Companies U and F of the 4th Infantry were assigned to Fort Hoskins until 1861 when they were transferred to the East with the outbreak of the Civil War. Fort Hoskins remained active with volunteer companies from Washington and California, In addition to safeguarding the Siletz Agency, the men at Fort Hoskins were responsible for keeping a Union presence in the midst of Confederate Loyalties. In October 1864, Fort Hoskins was temporarily closed. Two months later, Fort Hoskins was re-activated with Company B and F of the 1st Infantry, Oregon Volunteers. In April 1865, Fort Hoskins was decommissioned. This thesis examines the daily life of the Fort Hoskins soldier. Data on the mission of the Fort Hoskins soldier, regimented duty, social activities, the Oregon Volunteer's physical profile, and community relations are discussed as revealed through archival literature. From the archival information an archaeological model has been created for archaeological field testing at Fort Hoskins. The construction of this model will direct the archaeologist to features which hold data related to the every day life of the soldier. Additionally, this archaeological model will provide information on the artifact assemblages expected to be associated with these features.
