Corregidor Island

 

Located off the tip of the Bataan Peninsula, this 6.5 km x 2 km island, guards the entrance of Manila Bay was originally fortified by the Spanish to guard Manila and as a customs inspection point, and a penal institution (Spanish: Corregi – to correct).

 

When the British occupied Manila in October 1762 the island was used as an anchorage for warships, and following the Spanish-American War the Americans further fortified the island with coastal artillery and also became known as Fort Mills.

 

During World War II Corrigedor became the final bastion of the American/Filipino forces after General Douglas MacArthur retreated from Bataan, and from December 24th 1941 – February 19th 1942 the island was the home of the Government of the Philippines.  The Japanese laid siege to the island and forced the surrender of the island on May 6th 1942.

 

The battle to recapture the island from the Japanese lasted from the 16th February to the 26th February 1945.
