Battery Alexander - Conzelman Road, Southern Marin County, California
Battery Alexander - Conzelman Road, Southern Marin County, California
Commenced in October 1901, this eight-mortar battery, smallest mortar battery in the defenses of San Francisco, was armed with breech-loading 12-inch mortars, all Model 1890 manufactured by the Waterlievet Arsenal with serial numbers 145 through 160. These were mounted on model 1896 Mark I carriages with serial numbers 277 through 284. These carriages were all maufactured by the Rarig Engineering Company. The battery was named on November 22, 1902 in honor of Colonel Barton S. Alexander of the Corps of Engineers, an associate of Colonel George Mendell's and the senior engineer on the Pacific Coast, who had died in 1878. In the summer of 1918, the four forward of the eight 12-inch mortars were dismounted and shipped to the Morgan Engineering company. The four carriages were not scrapped until 1920. The battery was declared obsolete in 1943 and its final four mortars scrapped. Today, the battery's pits are used as picnic area. Mortars for Alexander were Model 1890 manufactured Waterviliet Arsenal numbers 145,147,148,150, 151, 155,159 & 160. The cost of the mortar was $7,750.00, and the mortar weighted 118,200 lbs with a range of 15,000 yards and had all-around-fire. These Mortars were mounted on Carriages, Model 1896 (Later converted to Model 1896 MI) numbers 277,278,279,280,281,282,283 & 284 all manufactured by the Rarig Engineering Company. Cost of the carriage was $12,500.00, and the carriage weighted 302,000. There were 310 built, were emplaced between 1897 to 1921, there various reallocations and partial removals between 1917 to 1921. The carriage had 12 bolts on the inner and the same amount on the outer. The circle diameter was 13' 7" inside bolt ring. The magazines and service rooms were located between the pits under earthen traverses, The ammunition supply for this battery was stored in two shell rooms which were 11 X 53 which was 583 sq. feet with two halls way leading up to them which was 10 X 70, which made them "L" shaped, The form of trolley used in this battery was a simple I beam attached to the ceiling by bolts through an upper flange, this form consisted of a pair of wheels running on the lower flange on either side of the beam and held together by a U-shaped yoke hanging down under the beam, each trolley carried a half ton Yale - Weston triplex block. The shell was taken out of the shell room, down to the entrance of the battery, and there loaded on to a shell truck and taken to the mortar. It also had two powder rooms which were 10 X 47 or 470 sq. ft each, with a small 10 X 18 room between the two powder magazines, it also had tracks in the floor for small rail cars that carried the silken bags of gun powder out to the entrance of the battery. War Reserve for this battery was, 320 and the battle allowance for this battery was, 320 rounds of fire, this battery could hold up to 1470 projectile, 200 powder charges for which storage space is provided for in the main powder magazine is 200 per mortar. This battery had 3 sub-caliber guns # 86; mortar #1, which fired a total of 417 rounds from 3 May 1910 to 3 August 1929; # 99; mortar # 2, fired a total of 428 rounds from 3 May 1910 to 5 August 1929; and # 87; mortar # 4, fired a total of 396 rounds between 3 May 1910 to 30 August 1941. Plans and estimates having been requested on 29 May 1900, examinations were begun in June of the sites selected by The Board of Engineers, with a view of investigating the facilities for prosecuting the work. This battery was allotted $1,000.00 on 25 July 1900, $89,362.00 on 31 October 1900, and $16,505.00 on 11 May 1901. The distance between the wharf and the site of the batteries being several miles over a mountainous road with an elevation of 640 feet at the highest point, the cost of transporting material by this road would be also prohibitory, so it was deemed best to make a hydrographic survey of a sheltered cove to determine whether a wharf could be built. The site of the wharf was selected, the depth of the outer end being 26 feet. To connect the wharf approach with good grounds above by a road was found to expensive, hence a tramway was designed to carry loads up to 6 tons in weight, was decided upon and built, from the foot of the wharf the tramway had a single car track which was 578 feet long, and was projected to reach the top of the bank at an elevation of 250 feet above the low-water plane. Also a barge 30 X 100 feet by 7 feet 6 inches deep capable of transporting safely loads of 200 tons in weight. The barge is to be used in the construction of the batteries for transporting supplies, it also carried the guns and carriages to the new wharf. The question of the transportation of supplies and the guns and carriages having been determined upon, the next thing was the clearing of the site. Construction of this battery began in 1901,when the site was cleared the excavation was started. The first step is to put in the foundation for the gun blocks for the mortars, the e

A Lost European Culture, Pulled From Obscurity By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD Before the glory that was Greece and Rome, even before the first cities of Mesopotamia or temples along the Nile, there lived in the Lower Danube Valley and the Balkan foothills people who were ahead of their time in art, technology and long-distance trade. For 1,500 years, starting earlier than 5000 B.C., they farmed and built sizable towns, a few with as many as 2,000 dwellings. They mastered large-scale copper smelting, the new technology of the age. Their graves held an impressive array of exquisite headdresses and necklaces and, in one cemetery, the earliest major assemblage of gold artifacts to be found anywhere in the world. The striking designs of their pottery speak of the refinement of the culture’s visual language. Until recent discoveries, the most intriguing artifacts were the ubiquitous terracotta “goddess” figurines, originally interpreted as evidence of the spiritual and political power of women in society. New research, archaeologists and historians say, has broadened understanding of this long overlooked culture, which seemed to have approached the threshold of “civilization” status. Writing had yet to be invented, and so no one knows what the people called themselves. To some scholars, the people and the region are simply Old Europe. The little-known culture is being rescued from obscurity in an exhibition, “The Lost World of Old Europe: the Danube Valley, 5000-3500 B.C.,” which opened last month at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University. More than 250 artifacts from museums in Bulgaria, Moldova and Romania are on display for the first time in the United States. The show will run through April 25. At its peak, around 4500 B.C., said David W. Anthony, the exhibition’s guest curator, “Old Europe was among the most sophisticated and technologically advanced places in the world” and was developing “many of the political, technological and ideological signs of civilization.” Dr. Anthony is a professor of anthropology at Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y., and author of “The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World.” Historians suggest that the arrival in southeastern Europe of people from the steppes may have contributed to the collapse of the Old Europe culture by 3500 B.C. At the exhibition preview, Roger S. Bagnall, director of the institute, confessed that until now “a great many archaeologists had not heard of these Old Europe cultures.” Admiring the colorful ceramics, Dr. Bagnall, a specialist in Egyptian archaeology, remarked that at the time “Egyptians were certainly not making pottery like this.” A show catalog, published by Princeton University Press, is the first compendium in English of research on Old Europe discoveries. The book, edited by Dr. Anthony, with Jennifer Y. Chi, the institute’s associate director for exhibitions, includes essays by experts from Britain, France, Germany, the United States and the countries where the culture existed. Dr. Chi said the exhibition reflected the institute’s interest in studying the relationships of well-known cultures and the “underappreciated ones.” Although excavations over the last century uncovered traces of ancient settlements and the goddess figurines, it was not until local archaeologists in 1972 discovered a large fifth-millennium B.C. cemetery at Varna, Bulgaria, that they began to suspect these were not poor people living in unstructured egalitarian societies. Even then, confined in cold war isolation behind the Iron Curtain, Bulgarians and Romanians were unable to spread their knowledge to the West. The story now emerging is of pioneer farmers after about 6200 B.C. moving north into Old Europe from Greece and Macedonia, bringing wheat and barley seeds and domesticated cattle and sheep. They established colonies along the Black Sea and in the river plains and hills, and these evolved into related but somewhat distinct cultures, archaeologists have learned. The settlements maintained close contact through networks of trade in copper and gold and also shared patterns of ceramics. The Spondylus shell from the Aegean Sea was a special item of trade. Perhaps the shells, used in pendants and bracelets, were symbols of their Aegean ancestors. Other scholars view such long-distance acquisitions as being motivated in part by ideology in which goods are not commodities in the modern sense but rather “valuables,” symbols of status and recognition. Noting the diffusion of these shells at this time, Michel Louis Seferiades, an anthropologist at the National Center for Scientific Research in France, suspects “the objects were part of a halo of mysteries, an ensemble of beliefs and myths.” In any event, Dr. Seferiades wrote in the exhibition catalog that the prevalence of the shells suggested the culture had links to “a network of access routes and a social framework of
