I was disappointed in the hours of this site. I was surprised it was not open on a Sunday and feel this would be indicated so folks can explore this area.

We attended the Anniversay Commemoration of the Battle of Alamance the weekend of May 16 / 17th. It was a wonderful program! There were many costumed re-enactors who were very friendly and knowledgeable. Exhibits were set up all around the site - there was cooking, weaving, a blacksmith and artillery displays. The organizers did a great job of scheduling different... More

This site saw two battles in two wars, making it a really interesting stop. Early interpretive signs sit side-by-side with modern ones, providing a wealth of information, some of it corroborated and some of it corrected by more recent excavation and research. Nice folks in the visitors' center are knowledgeable and friendly. The movie is good, too. There's also a... More

Alamance Battleground is the site of a pre-Revolutionary battle between the Royal Governor's militia and a group of armed farmers/rebels called the "Regulators". On the site today, there is a small visitor's center that offers a DVD program explaining what led up to the battle, and the battle itself. Also on the site is an 18th century log home complete...

This is a Revolutionary War site and really doesn't ofter that much other than being the first battle of the revolution.. The Allen House was moved to the site from Snow Camp but all it does is show you a typical home of that period. However, it was interesting that they used red flags to mark where the British stood...

We stumbled on the Alamance Battleground by pure chance, but what an experience it was. We have always been interested in US history, but the story of the Alamance Regulators stand off was totally new, and arguably had immense significance leading to later events. The PBS video prior to the tour helps to set the scene, and allows visitors to... More

The battleground and museum were a very pleasant surprise. Sitting on a country road, some 4 miles outside of Burlington, I anticipated a civil war site with some form of memorial. Much to my surprise, the battleground precedes the revolutionary war and is famous for the "Battle of the Regulators". The grounds are well maintained and the small museum had... More

Looking for a rainy day activity for my family and visiting sister and brother-in-law, we decided to visit Alamance Battleground State Historic Site. We went expecting to learn about a minor Revolutionary War battle. After 20 years in North Carolina, you would think I knew more about our history. The Battle of Alamance occurred in 1771 between militia loyal to... More
