CORREGIDOR: Best of the Islands Philippines

During the Spanish era, the island was a fishing village replete with a lighthouse and signal station through which all ships entering and leaving Manila Bay had to stop, thus earning it the name "Corregidor" which means "corrector."

When the Americans came, a hospital was built for wounded soldiers. In 1906, because of the strategic importance of Manila and the Bay, the Americans built a full-scale fortification on the island, equipping it with long-ranged and tractor-drawn guns, minefields and anti-aircraft guns.
