Located on the hillside above where Huntington's and Conway's brigades were encamped at Valley Forge (accessible from North Inner Line Drive near the Von Steuben statue), Redoubt 4 is one of several earthen fortifications that were originally constructed by soldiers to aid in the defense of the army from possible British attack.

Today, the reconstructed redoubt affords those who journey up the hill a sweeping view of the Grand Parade.
