From: Bob Dodson - Camden, Arkansas Camden Historical Advisory Commission
Date: 17 Nov 2006
Sir-The marker located southeast of the City of Camden marked as Ft. Southerland is incorrect. This Redoubt E a Civil War
fortification was marked by a local historian that marked it Ft. Southerland but the correct name for this redoubt was Ft.
Diamond. The correct location for this redoubt D (Southerland) was placed on California Street near the
intersection of Center Street and California Avenue near the USA Drug Store. In 2006, I placed plaques at all five redoubts
within the confines of Camden, Arkansas so that future generation would know the correct location of each redoubt.
