Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

This monument honors Maj. Joseph Winston and the Surry County rifleman who fought stubbornly beside William Campbell and "Light-Horse Harry" Lee. During the fierce struggle with British regiments, Lee's Legion veered southeast of the American second line, with a large contingent of enemy troops in pursuit.

You are looking in the direction of that separate engagement, but the fighting actually occurred a half-mile to the south, well beyond the present-day park boundary. The Battle of Guilford Courthouse was far more sprawling than the tour road and boundaries indicate.
