Redoubt No. 4 was part of the Confederate line known as Red Fort. Capt. John Phillip's Tennessee Light Artillery manned the redoubt until they were relieved on April 4, 1865 by Garrity's Alabama Light Artillery. Lt. Henry Carrell temporally commanded Garrity's Battery during the battle. The redoubt was armed with two 12-pounder Napoleons, one 12-pounder howitzer and two mortars.
