Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

As a British soldier, you are far more disciplined and experienced in battle than the rag-tag militia. Here at Guilford Courthouse your troops are outnumbered by more than two to one, but hunger and exhaustion seem greater enemies. This is foreign soil and hundreds of miles away from resupply and reinforcement.

A battalion of British Guards sweeps across this ground from right to left to assault the American third line. By this stage in the fighting, the Guards have momentum but their ranks have been thinned, While Continentals, the Americans' toughest troops, hold the high ground, the British soldiers are professionals and step forward with grim confidence.

The small monument in the middle of the field commemorates the death of a talented officer, Lt. Col. James Stewart of the Second Foot Guards.
