On March 15, 1781, the largest, most hotly-contested battle of the Revolutionary War’s Southern Campaign took place at Guilford Courthouse in Greensboro, NC. This year’s reenactment marks the 235th anniversary! The reenactment takes place on Saturday, March 18th in Greensboro. There is an entire weekend of events (see schedule link for those who are interested). The pack will tour the historical encampments, see period demonstrations and witness the battle reenactment. Featuring several hundred reenactors in full costume, horses, muskets and dozens of real cannons, it’s a great opportunity to see history in action! Transportation to Greensboro is on your own (although we encourage carpooling). You can arrive whenever you choose but the pack will meet at 10:00 am at the Visitor’s Center. Bring a bag lunch or you can purchase food from on-site vendors. Mark your calendars for this one! It’s worth the trip.
