They might have needed the extra wall height or just snow and rain protection.

My 1st thought was protection against rain & mud seeping into the tent!
All my MZLs will shoot into a ragged ~1/2" hole ALL DAY LONG... it's just the 2nd & 3rd shots that open the group!

They appear to be Sibley tents that have been "stockaded" as described by Billings in his book Hardtack and Coffee.

I believe the main purpose was to increase the standing space inside.

Why did you offer images of a "Sibley" in a topic about Rendezvous tents?

I would say I’ve seen more then one sibley at a rendezvous, even though unlike many of the tent shapes that inspire discussion its demostrively post 1840.

Indeed most Rendezvous include a timeframe that rages from the F&I war to the Civil War....

Even more importantly than that, The answer to Nechhi's question is right there in plain sight...I posted it right along with the picture....Why I posted it. Further reading of previous posts will give even more context....

Clyde, regarding that cook stove in the Sibley photo, it looks like they paid attention to the ratio of burn chamber to smokestack height to get most efficient draw.
