This is a reference guide to the Army’s Coast Artillery Corps in San Diego.
Fort Rosecrans defended San Diego harbor for nearly 100 years. Now, all that remains of this legacy are aging structures of concrete and steel.
This book is a catalogue of these buildings, the vestiges of a military complex that once spanned from the Mexican border to Cardiff by the Sea.
This book also examines the history of the Coast Artillery Corps, the branch of the Army that was responsible for the defense of American ports from 1798 to 1950.
