The first men arrived at Shoals Point in 1942. About thirty men from Battery A of the 266th Coast Artillery were assigned to construct an emergency battery of two old six-inch guns that the Navy gave to the Army for the defense of Sitka Sound. The two guns were emplaced on pedestal mounts just above the high tide line and just inside the trees. The 266th Coast Artillery referred to these guns as Battery Allen in their Christmas Dinner Menu of 1942. Cpl. Ted Gutches spent much of 1942 and 1943 at Shoals Point and has shared stories, photos and other memorabilia from his visit.
