Also known as Susanna Plaza, it was the scene of the only battle to occur in the Japanese seizure of Guam, just before dawn, Wednesday, 10 December 1941. During this battle, the bombing for the previous two days and the landing on the beaches, 17 American military men and Guamanian Insular Guard men died. Over 200 Japanese were to die in the short battle on the plaza. Most of the Japanese entered the plaza from the north and northwest, the last shots being fired from behind the Government House.
