Inscription
Stunned and reeling from fighting in Barber's Wheat Field, Crown Forces were able to re-form here behind previously constructed defenses. These log-and-earth walls had been built shortly after September 19, 1777. These fortifications are now known as the Balcarres Redoubt, named after the British officer who commanded the British Light Infantry stationed here.
