The Vancouver Barracks were the 'old frontier' long before the Indian Wars of the late 19th Century. From 1849 until the 1880s, soldiers from the Barracks were active, patrolling the Pacific Northwest, guarding against both Native American and domestic threats. Retired Colonel Bruce Mulkey will speak about some of these events.
