Each day's guard reported here for inspection, a short drill, and the daily parole and countersign. From here they relieved the previous day's guard.

The camp guard - 27 men from every 2 regiments - surrounded Jockey Hollow with a chain of sentinels. A picket guard - 2 officers and 50 men - assembled daily and "lay on their arms" waiting for orders.
