Fort Stotsenberg

Fort Stotsenberg (120.580E 15.186N) was the main base for the U.S. Cavalry in the Philippines. It was strategically located in the central Luzon plain, and included enough flat ground to provide a good site for an airfield, which became Clark Field.  The base was established in 1906.

The base was headquarters of I Corps, Reserve Force, and 1 Provisional Tank Force when war broke out in the Pacific. Stores in 1941 included 100,000 rations and over 1000 tons of gasoline; most had to be abandoned during the retreat to Bataan.
