1. Marker Location
In January 2009 the Point Peter Battery and the War of 1812 Marker seems to have been moved from its original location. It is now in the median at the entrance to a new subdivision on Spinaker Road. The crossroad is the extension of USS Kamehameha Avenue, which is closed by a fence at the boundary of the Kings Bay Naval Base.
