The Battle of Guilford Courthouse

On March 12-13, The Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department hosted the 230th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on the grounds of Greensboro Country Park. The annual event commemorates the pivotal Revolutionary War battle fought at the current site of the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.
Thousands of visitors were greeted with a wide range of activities, including re-enactment camps, battlefield tours, period crafts, musical performances and a stirring one-hour recreation of the battle itself.
Over 400 reenactors from across the country traveled to Greensboro this year to set up camp on the grounds of what once hosted the most decisive battle of the American Revolution’s southern campaign 230 years ago.
The Revolutionary War battle was fought March 15, 1781, between the American Forces under Greensboro’s namesake, Nathanael Greene, and British Commander Lord Charles Cornwallis.
Cornwallis’ failure to conquer North Carolina and subsequent loss of several other southern states eventually led to a British surrender eight months later at Yorktown, Virginia.
The Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department sponsors the annual Reenactment of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse at Greensboro Country Park, 3905 Nathanael Green Drive in Greensboro.
