From the Foreword:
******In addition to a structural history of the casemated masonry work, this report details the construction history of Batteries East and West, the De Russy and Elliot Seawalls, and no longer extant structures associated with Fort Point. Also found in this report is detailed data on the armament of these works for the years 1861-1900.
To secure documentary information to assist restoration architects to restore or stabilize Fort Point, Battery East, and the De Russy and Elliot Seawalls several hundred feet of manuscript of manuscript materials at the National Archives, the San Francisco Records Center, the Sixth Army Reference Library, and elsewhere, were examined. These documents were valuable to an understanding of the structural history of Fort Point.******
