BATTERY RUSSELL
This fort was fired upon in June 1942 by The Japanese submarine e-25. The Americans did not return fire, a strategy to not reveal the location of their guns to the enemy. It paid off, in that with no returning fire, the Japanese withdrew to the Aleutian islands.
This fort was deactivated in 1944. These pits show the gun locations, with the recoil underground.
