Additional Details:
The building that was to house this famed United States Court was built in 1840 as a barracks for two companies of soldiers. It was originally a two-storied structure, but after a fire in 1865 was rebuilt as 1 1/2 story affair. During the War between the states, it was used as a hospital, first by the Confederates who captured the Fort in 1861 and later by the Union forces, who occupied Fort Smith in 1863.
