Encercling the island and the three story fort. Batteries mounted more than 100 cannon to defend the bay during the civil War. During this period, the island began to be used as a military prison.

This is a crude calendar, fashioned by an unknown prisoner to help mark the passage of time in solitary. Whenever the prisoner was fed, he moved a token — a coin, a fingernail, a roach — one space. Two spaces equaled one day. Officially prisoners could not spend more than 19 days in solitary. The length of this calendar is evidence of prisoner’s distrust of the staff or its possible alternate use as a checkboard.
