About 1 1/4 mi. NE, now under water, a redoubt housed mainland defense headquarters for Island No. 10. It was flanked by Batteries 2, 3, 4 & 5. commanding the river. Successfully withstanding bombardment for two weeks, these and the island batteries interdicted the river until USS Carondelet and Pittsburg slipped past during darkness to cover Pope's crossing from New Madrid.
