If you’re going to be near Greensboro, NC next week

…then check out the lectures and anniversary festivities at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.

By the way, the Guilford Battleground Company has a blog.  It’s been up for some time, but I wasn’t aware of it until I was looking for information on the anniversary events, so I’ve added it to the blogroll.  These folks do some fine work in support of one of America’s most important battlefields, which also happens to be one of my favorite places to visit.

Every year I hope to make it to Guilford for the anniversary and reenactment, but something always keeps me from it.  In ’09 I actually had my hotel room booked and then had to back out at the last minute.  Here’s hoping that next weekend finds me in Greensboro.

    In ’09, the event was totally washed out so you didn’t miss one thing except a lot of rain and flooding. Last year, the rain held out until after the battle on Saturday. This year, keep your fingers crossed!

      Yeah, I heard that the ’09 event got waterlogged. I had looked at the weather forecasts, and I wondered if they’d be able to have the reenactment at all. I still wanted to go get some books signed, though.

  2. It is a great place, and my (one) visit there years ago went a long ways towards fueling my interest in this time in American history.

    The battle of Guilford Courthouse is going to be the subject of a number of blog posts over the coming weeks and months at “A Miniature History of the American Revolution.” What I have planned is summarized here: http://bit.ly/dTySLk

    I suspected that Guilford was going to be your next project when I saw that you were working on figures of the 2nd Maryland and Lee’s Legion. I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes!
