Notes
Survey number HAER NY-237
Significance: Battery Richmond is one of twelve batteries constructed at Fort Wadsworth during the reconstruction of U.S. Seacoast Defenses, known as the Endicott program, between 1890 and ca. 1905. It is significant as a representative example of Endicott-era emplacements for 12-inch breech-loading rifles, mounted on disappearing carriages, which were designed and built under the U.S. Army Engineer Department.
