You don’t have to look far before you’ll notice signs of the American Revolution in Guilford County. In fact, they’re on almost every street corner! Streets like Independence, Liberty, Colonial, Greene, Cornwallis, Battleground, as well as the city of Greensboro, all take their names from the historic Battle of Guilford Courthouse that took place on March 15, 1781. Thanks to the Guilford Battleground Company (GBC), the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park was established on the actual battle site, preserving an important piece of American heritage.
We invite you to join the GBC – the not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving these two parks and telling the story of the sacrifices made by colonial men and women who fought for our freedom.
