Battery C

A siren pierces the air! A German submarine is sighted! Soldiers scramble to their respective positions to defend the eastern entrance of the Cape Cod Canal from enemy attack.

This was only a drill. Enemy vessels were sighted along these shores, yet they never ventured within range of the guns of Sagamore Hill.

The field before you was the site of the 241st Coast Artillery Battery C encampment from late 1941 through WWII. At the end of the war the camp was disassembled and the field has now returned to a natural community.
