Battery Ledyard, built in 1899, was one of three Angel Island batteries installed to defend San Francisco Bay. Located at Point Knox, it was armed with two five-inch wire wound guns. Battery Ledyard was named for Lt. August C. Ledyard, 6th Infantry, who was killed in the Philippine American War the same year. In 1915 the Army declared batteries Ledyard, Drew and Wallace obsolete and the guns were removed from the island.
