Fort Barrancas was placed to overlook the bay towards Fort Pickens.Chase lived in Pensacola and was popular with the businessmen who ran financial institutions, transportation, and merchants who profited from the business he fostered with the military.Chase spearheaded the drive to lay railroad from Pensacola, FL to Montgomery, AL.
