A narrow three-mile channelProviding a narrow entrance to the west coast's most defensible harbor, the strategic value of the Golden Gate is readily apparent. Between 1776 and 1846, Spanish, then Mexican, guns defended the harbor entrance. Starting in 1846, American soldiers guarded the passage, building fortifications on both sides of the channel, and on Alcatraz and Angel Island.
