The Doctor's Office was a very important place at the fort. People did not know what caused illness or disease at that time.A trained doctor could prescribe medicines, set broken bones, remove bullets or amputate an arm or leg. There was also a hospital area in the south bastion near the immigrant quarters. The hospital was used to quarantine sick people in case they had a transmittable disease.
