Great view into the past. School groups go regularly for educational presentations of the ways of life during revolutionary times. There are also battleground encampments with soldiers going about their daily lives. An authentic cabin with women doing their household jobs is also there. Check the calendar to find dates of the exhibitions.

I went to see this historic site in the late summer. There are displays of historical artifacts in the visitors center. You can watch a short reenact end video of the major figures if the battleground, and their sacrifices. Later you can walk the battleground, which straddles NC 62, and see markers where the Regulators and loyalists actually stool. It... 更多
