Steilacoom, WA Tidbits

Almost all of the troops were emptied during the summer and autumn from Fort Steilacoom during the supposed Pig War in 1859. This boundary dispute involved the San Juan Islands, which resulted in a massive build-up of American troops on the southernmost edge of San Juan Island.

Originally, a Captain named George Pickett was in charge of one company of 9th Infantry troops in to establish a presence on the island. Captain Pickett called in his reinforcements when he was confronted with the overwhelming numbers and superiority of firepower. His request was granted in the form of almost 500 engineer troops, infantry, and artillery under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Silas Casey.

Lt Casey wisely relocated his camp that Captain began to a position that was less exposed. He also started engaged in diplomatic conversations with his British counterparts, who were anchored offshore and spearheaded the building of a redoubt intended for large guns.

The redoubt project and the American encampment lasted only a short time. Negations that involved British Governor James Douglas and General Winfield Scott about the placement of an element the size of a company from both countries on both ends of the island ensued by 1860. At the conclusion of the negations Fort Steilacoom was the first American company to be stationed on the island. This effort included was Company C of the 4th Infantry from Fort Steilacoom. Captain Lewis Call commanded this company and Lieutenant named Arthur Schaaf and, in 1860, was replaced on the island by the 9th infantry under the command of Captain Pickett. Fort Steilacoom would provide another company to the defense of the island, namely a Captain by the name of Thomas English of Company H/9th Infantry the would replace the company that Captain Pickett commanded.

The reinforcements from military posts between the Cowlitz River and the Vancouver barracks to Fort Steilacoom and northwards to Fort Bellingham resulted in the plans for the construction of a military location between these locations.

In the late 1860's Lincoln arrived in Fort Steilacoom. In response to the election on Mr. Lincoln, nearly immediately the Southern states started seceding from the US. In order to quickly mobilize rebel forces, the federal arsenals across the South were seized and their contents redistributed. Mr. Lincoln requested the concentration of Federal troops to the east in response to this threat. In an effort to prepare to assembly with their respective ports, in California, Fort Steilacoom was a flurry of activity.

The regular soldiers of Fort Steilacoom would become part of the Federal Division when they redeployed to the East. These regularly soldiers are the professionally trained nucleus within what would become a mainly volunteer force created for the purpose of eradiating the rebellion of Southern states. For transport to the East Coast, soldiers of the 4th Regiment assembled with their fellow companies in Southern California. Soldiers of the 9th Regiment were expected to do the same. The potential for both Native Indian and foreign attack as well as the threats from Confederate sympathizers convinced President Lincoln to keep the 9th Infantry on the West Coast for the remainder of the Civil War.

The recruitment of voluntary troops became necessary as the result of the draining of Federal troops from Fort Steilacoom.There were some citizen soldiers who handled the difficult task of maintaining the peace between the frequently whites and the Native Indians, in the absence of Regular Army soldiers. They also protected and improved and established transportation and communication routes.

The residents of the community of Steilacoom as well as the volunteer troops at Fort Steilacoom had both received the news about the Confederate surrender in Appomattox by the middle of April 1865. The size of the companies had begun to dwindle and volunteer offers had tendered their resignations even before the end of war. Soldiers in the 14th Regiment were briefly stationed at Ft. Steilacoom. However, east of the cascades, new Indian insurgencies resulted in General Halleck having to reallocate new resources from the US Army, by 1868.

In the 1950s several of the posts that were established on the West Coast were closed, including Fort Steilacoom. Washington Territory became the new home of the 640 acre farm site and fort.

These days, four of the original buildings of the fort remain on location and are open to both school groups and visitors. In 1864, the Catholic chapel on the post was relocated and is currently serving an active congregational gathering place in downtown Steilacoom, somewhat close to the fort.

Local volunteers donated generously of the skill and their time as well as raising fund for the restoration and restoration of the homes of the original officers that had been left in disrepair in early 1983. The Historic Fort Steilacoom Association was established by this dedicated group to interpret the site for future generations as well as to restore the buildings.
