In June - July, 1861, barracks and service buildings within a 200-foot-square earthwork were built on this site by the battalion of United States Reserve Corps, Companies A, B, and C, organized by Major R. T. Van Horn, then Mayor of the City. By these means Kansas City was held to the Union throughout the Civil War while border fighting harassed the county. The cellars of the unfinished Coates Hotel on the west were used as cavalry barns.
