Located on the bow, lower battery of Fort Drum on (El Fraile Island) in Manila Bay.
Built prior to the war. Emplaced two 14" M1909 guns built by Watervliet Arsenal in an enclosed turret. The guns are numbered from right to left if you are facing the target, No. 1 (right) and No. 2 (left). Named Battery Marshall in honor of William T. Marshall.
At the end of the war, the left gun barrel was left elevated at a 45 degree angle. The right gun barrel was damaged and left at a negative horizontal angle. As of 2007, both gun barrels remain intact.
