(July 3, 2013) Enlarge Jamestown Virginia -Square Redoubt
 
Toward the center of the island is the Square Redoubt. Located along the modern auto tour, it once guarded the military road and protected Jamestown's interior against boat attack via Passmore Creek, just opposite the fort. This photo was taken on July 3, 2013, and is very close to the exit from the 2nd auto tour stop turnout to the auto tour road. The location is hard to see due to dense vegetation

(July 3, 2013) Enlarge Jamestown During the Civil War
 
On June 30, 2013, we started down the auto tour at the Jamestown unit of the Colonial National Historical Park at the second pull-off from the tour road this panel is in place. The panel mentions five, so we were alert when pulling out and noticed the Square Redoubt just as we entered back onto the tour road

(July 3, 2013) Enlarge Fort Pocahontas Panel
 
This panel is located in what remains of Confederate Fort Pocahontas. The archaeological area for the original 1607 English settlement is located on roughly the same ground. On June 30, 2013 a portion of the earthwork was directly next to some palisades, grave markers, and other items relating to the first permanent English colony in Virginia
