Overview

Redoubt Park, located on Quarterpath Road, was dedicated on May 5, 2007 to celebrate the 145th Anniversary of the Battle of Williamsburg. The two redoubts, #1 and #2, preserved in Redoubt Park, were built by soldiers and slaves to guard Quarterpath Road and the right flank of the Williamsburg Line overlooking Tutters’ Mill Pond. On May 5, 1862, the Williamsburg Line was the scene of a battle with over 3800 Union and Confederate casualties. This inconclusive engagement left the Union in control of the Virginia Peninsula. These fortifications remain a stark tribute to those who served, defining America’s future.

This is a small park with some walkways that take you to fortifications remaining from the Civil War. There are some historical markers around. It's not too crowded. There's not a ton of trails, so you can fully explore in an hour or so.

This little park is less than two miles from the Colonial Capital. Where Williamsburg's living museum focuses on the Colonial period, this park commemorates the Battle of Williamsburg during the Civil War. The park encompasses redoubts and a couple of easily-walked trails, with the occasional...More

We had the opportunity to view the park with a friend who knows a whole lot about the Civil War. It brought the redoubt to life.
