Constructed in 1865

Low morale often led to discipline problems at the Fort. For disobeying orders, a soldier may have been forced to "ride" the wooden horse. Serious infractions resulted in time spent in the guard house.

Journal Entry

Memorandum: Dick Wilson enlisted in our squad from S. Paul in October 1863. He was a very bad case. His home has been the guard house ever since he enlisted. He broke out and deserted the 13th of February. He was caught and brought back. Again he broke out and deserted, and this time succeeded in getting away.
