The Chief of Staff and the Chief of CoastArtillery Address the Graduates of the Coast Artillery School
General Summerall's address on the future responsibilitiesand mission of the Coast Artillery Corps
T

graduates. Since1824it has maintained a standard ofsdelltific edn-cationthat has been reflectedin the progress of the arm in our owncoun-try andthat hasheldthe admiration and respect offoreignservices. Todayits missionis greater than ever before.Ooastdefense has been a part of our country's development from theearliest da:rs. The old Dutch fort onlower Broadway was the beginningofNewYork Oity. The British and French early guarded the lake routesand the harbors. The Oolonistsfell heir to the guns and the defenses intheir earliest military operations. The location of General Knox's gUllSfrom Ticonderogathat drove the British :fleetfrom Boston Harbor
will
ever be an historic spot. In the years that followedthe Revolution thevalue of harbor defenseswas quickly forgotten. The result was to leavethe harbon1unprotected. Never has there been a more humiliating spec-tacle than the helplessnessof Mr. Jefferson when for two years the Presi-dent's Non-intercourse Proclamation and the Embargo Acts of Congresswereheld in contempt by foreign countries and British ships sailed defi-antly in and out of KewYork Harbor impressing our citizens and takingour supplies. When the ,Yar of 1812began, the merchants and profes-sionalrr:enof NewYork Oity workedwith their ownhands on GovernorsIsland to establish a temporary earthwork. From that wholesomelessonthere grewthe old stone forts that one seesonboth sides of every harborentranee on our coastswhich in their day proclaimedto the world the in-violabilityof our shores.
It
is significantthat the greatest ofthese, erectedon the Dry Tortugas for the protection of our Gulf coasts, was namedfor the mostpacifistofPresidents whobecamea convertto national defense
