Apr. 9, 1942 -- 75,000 American and Filipino troops surrendered to Japan at Bataan in the Philippine Islands. Among those who surrendered, the 200th Costal Artillery was the last. Lt. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright would later state of the 200th Coastal Artillery, “They were the first to fire and they were the last to lay down their arms, doing so reluctantly, under direct orders.”
