 Notes:
  Fort H.G. Wright was named for MG Horatio G. Wright,, a Union volunteer in the Civil War and an U.S. Army engineer, 1879-1884.
  Headquarters of Harbor Defenses of Long Island Sound from 1913.
  Part of a coastal defense that included 3 other installations, Fort Terry on Plum Island off of the North Fork of Long Island, Fort Michie on Great Gull Island in the Long Island Sound between Fishers Island and the North Fork, and Camp Hero at Montauk Point.
  Part of the 11th Coast Artillery Regiment from November 1924.
  No shots were ever fired from the batteries at these installations.
  Called Munnawtawkit by the Pequot, Fishers Island is two miles south of Connecticut and 11 miles north of Long Island.
  John Winthrop, the son of the founder of Boston, and his descendents, owned the island (originally Visher's Island) from 1640 to 1863.
  Brickmaking was the only industry on Fishers Island through most of the 19th century.
  Today the only ferry to the island is from New London.
