    Protection From Federal Bombardment


Hundreds of heavy timbers like these were used to form a covered passageway behind the open casemates to protect the backs of the casemate artillerymen. Tons of soil from the parade was excavated to create long ditches perpendicular to the plane of fire. This soil provided extra thickness to the timber casemate protection and the ditches captured landing shells and solid shot and blocked quite a few low trajectory shell fragments from these exploding shells.
