Inscription. This reconstructed small fort, guarding the southeastern approaches to Camden, was one of a ring of redoubts surrounding the fortified town. Typical of eighteenth century field fortifications, this redoubt used a combination of moat, earthen parapet, and palisade wall t defend against enemy attack. The interior of the work is equipped with firing steps for infantry and an earthen bastion platform for artillery. A small magazine also would have originally been located in the center of the redoubt. The present reconstruction is based on a 1781 American map of Camden.
