The Skiffes Creek Redoubt formed part of Confederate Maj. Gen. John Bankhead Magruder's Second Peninsula defensive line. The redoubt was constructed in early April 1862 during the Peninsula campaign's Warwick-Yorktown line siege. The fortification helped defend the right flank of the Confederate defensive line until abandoned during the evening of May 3, 1862.
