 Additional history on Fort Birdseye. "Built in Jackson County by settlers during the Rogue River Indian Uprising of 1855 - 1856. It was created on the south bank of the Rogue River near the mouth of Birdseye Creek. The wounded Hungry Hill troops were carried to the safety of Fort Birdseye near the present town of Rogue River. The old Birdseye home had timbers made from the old Fort Birdseye." (Submitted on January 11, 2018, by Douglass Halvorsen of Klamath Falls, Oregon.)
