The Reenactment of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse

This annual re-enactment of the March 15, 1781 battle is accompanied by a lecture series, speeches, period demonstrations, and exhibits. Although the British won the battle under Cornwallis, it was a turning point leading to their final defeat at Yorktown, which ended the Revolutionary War. The re-enactment has been held since 1981.

Originally submitted by: Howard Coble, Representative (6th District).
