Category: Corregidor Island, Fort Mills

Corregidor is a place of HISTORY, important both for the Philippines and the United States of America. It was a great American Fort (Fort Mills) and played a key role in WWII. It was a battle field in the loss of the Philippines in 1942 and a great battle of liberation took place here in 1945! I love history and visited this island many times.
