The information contained pertains to the Union advance on Williamsburg and the 14 Confederate redoubts & trenches created to protect the city

This photo was taken July 6, 2013 from directly behind the ranger station looking to the large softball field. Directly behind the softball field first-base line in the copse of trees lies Confederate Redoubt #12 hidden in the trees

(July 2013) Enlarge Redoubt #12 Trail Entrance
 
The blue-and-white square with the number 12 is the indication to start walking a path leading to Confederate Redoubt #12. This trail entrance can be easily missed. The visitor should go to the first base line of the softball field and look for the small opening in the foliage. After a short walk, the first interpretive sign will appear

      

(July 2013) Enlarge Redoubt #12 Remains
 
The area around the redoubt, including the redoubt itself is left almost undisturbed. There is a short path around a portion of the redoubt but entrance to the redoubt is off-limits. The viewer may notice a tree which had fallen, but this is not a path which should be used to enter the redoubt itself
