Abstract or Summary
  • During the summer of 2016, Oregon State University conducted preliminary excavations of the hospital at Fort Yamhill, Oregon (35PO75). Fort Yamhill (1856-1866), has long been a focus of OSU’s field schools, offering glimpses into garrison life through the eyes of the officers and the enlisted men. However, up until recently, little was known about how the Army Medical Department operated within Fort Yamhill’s system. This thesis combines extensive archival research and exploratory excavations to create an understanding of military hospital operation and medical practices of this era and provide insight into the hospital’s construction and operation at Fort Yamhill. Detailed information regarding fort medical staff has been used to create an image of the hospital and its operation throughout the fort’s occupation. Additionally, hospital records were used in conjunction with contemporary diaries to offer discussion on the condition of enlisted men at Fort Yamhill and the treatment of non-military patients.
