The Guard House

“This building has a history, which gives one an insight into the history of the place. It is called the ‘guard house;’ sometimes Indians needing discipline are imprisoned in it. The dark walls, if they could talk, could tell a long story of similar service. It was built by the Hessian soldiers whom Washington had captured at the battle of Trenton in 1776, and sent to this place.”

The Guard House pictured above reveals the harsher side of Carlisle’s military style of education. Students who resisted the acculturation process were sometimes locked within the building as punishment. The coercive element of Pratt’s educational experiment was rarely discussed in Carlisle’s publication; however, this comparison is particularly interesting for its historical comparison of Indian students to prisoners of war.
