Dambana ng Kagitingan, atop Mt. Samat in Pilar, Bataan , was built to commemorate the gallantry of approximately 75,000 Filipino and American soldiers led by Major General Edward "Ned" P. King, Jr. The most distinct feature of the shrine is the Memorial Cross, a 92-meter marble, steel and concrete structure built 555 meters above sea level. At the base is a sculptural bas relief that depicts important historical events and battles in the Philippines, which was built under the administration of President Ferdinand Marcos.
