In 1779, Major General Heath supervised construction of South (Middle) and North Redoubts (located across the river and east of the Town of Garrison). Both were designed to prevent British control of eastern approaches to West Point and Constitution Island. Washington was probably inspecting South Redoubt when Benedict Arnold, learning of Major Andre's capture, fled from his headquarters at the Beverly Robinson House.
