Sentries were stationed to eat and sleep between periods of sentry duty at the 21 sentry posts around the town. The town had five Guardhouses (the Dauphine Gate, the town side entrance to the King’s Bastion, the Queen’s Gate, the Maurepas Gate, and the Pièce de la Grave), and whilst not sleeping sentries would be “on call” from those Guardhouses at need.

In the Guardhouse at Fort Scott National Historic Site, typical furnishings for guard quarters included benches, tables, shelves, a platform bed for the men resting between assignments, arms racks, a fireplace or stove, and leather buckets (used for firefighting – another duty of guards). Prison cells were unfurnished, containing simply a slop bucket and iron rings on walls for the attachment of shackles.

In the case of small to mid-sized facilities, generally, the entire physical security envelope is controlled from the Guardhouse.

One of the general orders of a sentry in the United States Navy and Marine corps is to “Repeat all calls more distant from the guardhouse than my own.” Guardhouses thus serve as central communications hubs for outlaying sentry posts, being where the Corporal of the Guard is stationed. When sentries are relieved by their replacements, the sentry stationed at the Guardhouse, designated “No. 1”, is conventionally relieved first.
