Soldiers shipped out from hereFirst the Spanish and then the American military used this bluff to guard the harbor against hostile invasion. As the 19th century came to a close, Fort Mason's mission shifted from keeping enemy ships out of the bay to sending U.S. military ships overseas. By 1915, Fort Mason was the army's primary depot for shipping troops and supplies to conflicts and colonial territories in the Pacific.
