1. Northeast Redoubt Marker
Inscription. This partially reconstructed redoubt was one of six small forts built by British forces during their occupation of Camden in 1780 - 1781. Manned by a detachment of infantry and supported by heavy artillery, these works served as the outer line of defense of the British base. The forts were later destroyed during the British evacuation of Camden in May 1781. Archaeological investigations at this site in 1967 yielded numerous military artifacts and provided the basis for reconstructing the southern third of the redoubt.
