      In answer to the perpetual need for housing, construction of an enlisted men's barracks commenced at the opposite end of these foundation ruins. The barracks were extended in this direction as more men were assigned. Kitchens, mess halls, laundress' quarters and latrines were built behind (to your left).       Home to about 150 men, the two-story barracks were sparsely furnished. Bunks, made of wood by the quartermaster, were two tiers high with each tier accommodating two men. The Indian wars term "Bunkie," referring to a soldier's closest comrade, derived from this sleeping arrangement.       The two-story barracks were replaced in 1868 by a one-story barracks.
