Battery Bartlett was built in the 1890's atop the fort's original earthen ravelin (triangular fortification in front of the bastions). A major upgrade to earlier batteries, it protected the Nantasket Roads and the Narrows Channels into Boston and the deep-water anchorage off Long Island. Named after Maj. Gen. William F. Bartlett of Massachusetts, it was one of the earliest batteries built after a ground-breaking plan laid out by former Secretary of War William C. Endicott. The guns were scrapped in 1943;the battery was partially demolished in the 1970s. For safety reasons it is closed to visitors.
