The Bataan Province is located on this peninsula. Defeated in the Battle of Bataan during World War II, after the fall of the fortress of Corregidor the Bataan death march took place down the Bataan Peninsula. The captured allied forces were forced to march off the peninsula to internment camps under brutal and horrid conditions suffering many hundreds of cruel war crimes on the road, where they were allowed little water and even prohibited from relieving bodily functions.
