Life in a Remote Siberian Garrison

Life in a Remote Siberian Garrison

(p.88) Chapter Seven Life in a Remote Siberian Garrison

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses life in Siberian garrisons over the eighteenth and first three quarters of the nineteenth century. Garrison “lines” in Siberia were set up to assert Russian military presence over a vast territory, from Orenburg in the Urals to the Kamchatka peninsula in the far east. Garrisons were manned mainly by Cossacks. Most were expected to serve for most of their adult life—for up to 20 years although almost half of this was normally in initial training or, at the end of their career, in the reserve—and could be sent wherever the state wished, either individually or as part of a Cossack group.
