Guilford Courthouse National Military ParkAmong these trees you may find it difficult to stay oriented to the battlefield. The combatants faced the same problem. Stationed here on the left flank of the American First Line, Lt. Col. Henry Lee and his legion of cavalry and infantry had orders to withdraw and support the second line after the first line gave way. Disoriented by the thick woods and chase of battle, Lee's forces veered southeast and missed the left flank of the second line.
