Upon an island opposite was a very strong fortress, called the Castle of San Juan de Ulloa, which the Mexicans regarded as invulnerable. This and Vera Cruz were considered the key of the country. This fortress and the city were completely invested by the Americans four days after the landing, and on March 22 General Scott and Commodore Conner were ready for the bombardment.
