Earthwork Defense System

Soldiers constructed earthen fortifications called redoubts (French for a place of retreat). These redoubts were connected by miles of entrenchments designed to strengthen the natural advantages of the terrain here. These fortifications were part of the carefully planned system of defense at Valley Forge. This redoubt was one of five. It was located so that it could overlook the approach from Philadelphia, which was occupied by the British, and also protect the far eastern end of the outer line of defense from attack.General DuPortail's Map of Valley Forge EncampmentFrench General Louis Lebegue Duportail designed and mapped the defensive system for the encampment at Valley Forge. It included redoubts at high points and miles of earthworks.
