Guilford Courthouse NMP

— National Park Service —

This trail passes through the actual deployment of the American third line, contradicting the location of the Regulars' Monument near Stop 7. Recent research and study may reveal more accurately where the battle action fit the terrain.

Before rejoining the historic road trace, the trail curves along high ground. Greene chose this position wisely; the British had to climb out of the creek valley before engaging the patriots' most seasoned troops - the Maryland and Delaware Continentals. This was the day's most fiercely contested ground.
