REPORT OF BOARD OF REVIEW.
WAR DEPARTMENT,
OFFICE OF THE CHIEF OF STAFF,
Washington, November 26, 1915.
From: Board of R eview.
To: Secretary of War.
Subject: Report of the Board of Review as to the needs of seacoast
defen e .
In compliance with the instructions of the Secretary of War
directing the Board of Review to report upon so much of a letter of
the Hon. Swagar Sherley, M. C., dated March 10, 1915, as relates to
the needs of seacoast defenses, the following is submitted :
The last comprehensive report upon the needs of our seacoast
defenses was that made by the Taft Board on February 1, 1906.
That board recommended that additional armament be emplaced
at a number of localitie in continental United States, but as the
appropriations for new fortifications that have been made since that
date have been confined mainly to the insular possessions and the
Panama Canal, comparatively little of the additional armament
proposed by that board ha been installed. The period that has
elapsed since the date of the report of the Taft Board has been
marked by radical changes in naval designs, which included the
development of the dreadnaught type of battleship, a type carrying
heavier armor and much more powerful ordnance than its predecessors. As a consequence both the offensive and defensive capabilitie of warships have been materially increased.
In recognition of this development the department during the
early part of the curr nt year adopted the policy that the majorcaliber direct-fire gun to be installed in future should be of at least
16-inch caliber. Considerations of the same character, more particularly the greater structural strength and increased deck protection of modern battleships, have led the Board of Review to recommend that seacoast mortars to be installed in future should be of
16-inch caliber. In addition to these types, the project of the board,

as outlined hereinafter, call for the utilization as howitzers of a number
of 12-incb guns that are now on band, by mounting them on barbette
carriages of a special design that will permit of the attainment of a
range of 30,000 yards.
The projects of the board, together with a brief statement of the
objects expected to be accomplished by the proposed additional
armament, are as follows:
PoRTLA D, ME.: Two 12-inch guns mounted for long-range fire-to
defend the harbor and the existing defenses against a long-range
naval bombardment.
BosToN, MAss.: Two 16-incb guns and four 12-inch guns mounted
for long-range fire-to supplement the fire of the existing defenses and to defend the anchorage are11s against long-range
naval bombardment.
BuzzARDS BAY: Two 12-incb guns mounted for long-range fire at
Fort Rodman-to deny the bay as a base to the warships and
transports of an enemy.
EASTERN ENTRA cE, LoNG l sLA~ro SouND : Six 16-inch guns, eight
16-inch mortars, and two movable 4.7-incb guns-to supplement the fire of existing defenses, particularly in the p1·evention
of a run-past, and to afford a defense again t a long-range naval
bombardment.
SouTHERN NEw Yomc Four 16-inchguns, foru 12-inch guns mounted
for long-range fire, four 6-inch guns, and sixteen 16-inch mortars-to advance t-he line of defen e and preclude a naval bombardment of New York and Brooklyn, to afford increased protection to a United States fleet debouching from Ambrose
hannel, and to prevent the reduction of the existing defen es
at Foi·t Hnncock by long-runge naval fire.

four 3-inch guns, and forty-eight 16-inch mortars; for th msular pos essions, eight 12-inch guns mounted for long-range fire; and
for th e Pn.nmna Cann.l, four 16-inch guns, four 12-inch gm1s molmtcd

The board has recommended al o th at <tn n.ppropri atio n be u. ·keel
of Congress at i L nex t . cs ion for the constru ction of . i.' 16-inch
movable hov..'itz<'rs and an experimr ntal 14-inrh gun on railroad-car
mount for dcfen c again t ho tile landing in unfortified hn.rbor .
The poli cy followed ht' rPtoforc as to reserve seacoast ammunition
has contemplated the ttc umulation of t ho o-called h vo-hour
allowance-an allowance as. umed to be sufficient for the dumtion
of a ingle engagement. Tho bor.rd is co nvin ced tha.t thaL allowance
is inadequate, and bns recommended that the allowan ces for the
evcral calibers be:
(a ) For gun in ontinental nitod tate ·, except gun. of -inch
caliber and upwttrd on irmor line.,; of defense, allowances equal to
one-half the accma ·y life of the respective caliber;;;· for mortn.rs,
except OH inner line of clefon o, an nllowance equal to on<'-fourt h
tho accumey life.
(b) For armament of -i.n ch caliber and upward on inner lines of
defense in continental Unit d Stn.to", 11.llowances eq ual to one-half
those for outer lines.
(c) For guns in the iu uhr pos:Ps:ion;; and on the Canal Zone,
allowances equal to tho accuracy lifo of tho respective ealibers · for
mortars, an allowance equal to two-thirds th aceurncy life.
In so far as can be foreseen by the board at the present ti.me, the
only additional land that will be required in couuection with existing
defenses will be a small amount at Los Angeles for the installation of
certain accessories. For the projected defenses additional land will
be needed at Boston, Rockaway Beach, Delaware Bay, near New
Orleans, San Franci co, Puget Sound, and at Panama. The esti.mated
cost of the areas required is shown in the tables of estimated cost
given hereinafter.

REPORT OF BOARD OF BEVIEW.

The board has studied the existing seacoast fortifications with a
view to determining which, if any, are of insufficient military importance to warrant their retention. As a result of this study the
board has reached tho conclusion that the following armamen t is of
insufficient military value to warrant incurring the cost involved in
providing a manning personnel or ammunition therefor:
Boston : One 10-ii1ch rifle.
Long Island Sound : Two 8-inch rifles.
Eastern ew York: Sixteen 12-inch mor tars (cast iron).
Sou them New York: Two 8-inch rifles.
Delaware River: Two 12-inch and two 8-inch rifles.
Cape Fear River: Four 8-inch rifle and four 12-inch mortar (<:a t
iron).
Mobile: Two 8-inch rifles.
San Francisco: Six teen 12-inch mortars (cast iron) and five -inch
rifl es.
(It is proposed, in connection with the above scheme, that four steel mortars shall be
transferred from Fort Totten to Fort Slocum, and four steel mortars from Fort Howard
to Fort Slocum, and that four steel mortars from Fort De Soto and foUl' from Fort
~Iorgan shall be transferred to San Diego to be mounted in the emplacements authorized at the last session of Congress.)
The board is of the opinion also that upon the installation of the
proposed additional armament call d for und er the projects above
outlined, the following armament will become of in ufficient military
value to warrant incurring the cost involved in providing .a manning
personnel or ammunition therefor, and th e co t of ammunition for
this armament is not included in the total e' timates of cost given
below:
Long Island Sound: 1\vo 10-inch and four 5-inch rifl e .
Eastern New York: Two -in ch rifle .
Southern New York: Sixteen 12-incb mortars (east iron ).
Baltimore: One 12-inch and three 8-in ch rifle,, .
Potomac River : Three 8-inch rifles.
Pensacola: Two 8-inch rifles.
New Orleans: Two 8-inch rifles.
Co]umbia River: Four 12-inch mortars.
In view of the impracticability of anticipating the military a.nd
naval developments of the future, the board is not prepared at this
time to recommend the relinquishment by the Government of any
8
REPORT OF BOARD OF REVIEW.
of the areas of land h eretofore acquired by the Government in connection with existing or prospective fortification projects, and it
recommends, therefore, that the armament ]isted above, and the areas
of land on which it is now emplaced, be retained for possible future
mi wtary need .
The board has con idered the advisa.b ility of continuing the disappearing carriage in eacoa t fortifications to be constructed in the
future, or of sub t itutlng in its stead some other caniage. "The
board is of the opinion that the disappearing principle should be retained and that it should be the type of mount for direct-fire guns,
except in those instances where special conditions may render advisable the installation of the turret or the barbette mount."

If the appropri at ions to be made by Congress be equal to the
amount" that can be expended annually "'rith advantage by the construction departments, the manufacture and installation of all of the
armament included in the projec ts of the board may be expected to
require ap proximately fom yeara. In accordance with the instructions of the Secretary of War, the amount of the estimat s for new fortification work submitted for consideration by Congress at the nex t
session has been confined to $20,000,000, a sum which is approximately one-fourth of the total es timated cost of the proj ect submitted by the board on September 15, 1915. An -appropriation for
the firat year of a.n amount greater than $20,000,000 could be expended, however, with advantage, and would result in greater expedition in the accomplishment of the entire project.
The conclusions of the board upon the particular items of armament to be included in the estimates submitted for consideration by
REPORT OF ffiOARD OF REVIEW .
11
by Congress at the next session were based upon the following
assumption :
(a) That the installation of the projected armament for Rockaway
Beach is recogillzed to be a matter of first importance; but, as it is
expected that approximately one year will be required for the Government to acquire title to the land upon which the defenses will be
erected, the actual appropriation of funds for the fortification of that
locality, except for the acquisition of the site, may be deferred until
next year without delaying materially the final completion of the
project, provided authorization be given to proceed to carry out the
execution of the project in a continuous way.
(b) That the installation of the 12-inch guns mounted for longrange fire will afford, in genera.l a greater measure of protection than
an be obtained oth rwise in the arne time and for a like expenditure
of funds.
(c) That as the supply of anti-aircraft guns for the protection of
existing defenses is an urgent necessity, and as these guns can be
procured expedition ly, provi ion for the procurement of a number of
the e guns should be included in the program for this year.
(d) That it is deemed inadvi able to postpone the completion of
the fortifications at San Pedro for such additional time-about one
and on -half years-as would be required to substitute 16-inch guns
in place of the 14-inch guns now approaching completion .
