Facing Port Royal Sound (to the left of this photograph), Battery Fornance was armed with two 4.7-inch cannons. The guns were mounted on an elevating platform which would raise the cannons to fire at enemy ships, then lower them behind the protection of the sand and concrete ramparts.

Liam, I'm so sorry for the type-O. I seem to do that often with your name, and, again, I'm sorry! I'll try not to let it happen again. :(
