You can watch a short reenact end video of the major figures if the battleground, and their sacrifices. Later you can walk the battleground, which straddles NC 62, and see markers where the Regulators and loyalists actually stool. It... More

We love 2 visit historical sites. It's like stepping back in time and thinking about how things were in the past. It is interesting 2 read the accounts of people in the past & their tragedies and struggles.

The experiences offered were amazing the characters were educatintionaly amazing, some were in character the whole time we were with them, which was fun to watch the 8th graders put the connections together, as to why they were doing what they were doing. Thank you to all involved.

It was really interesting how one of the main players in the whiskey rebellion in Pa. found his way to N.C. to continue anti government sentiments. The battlefield is a great learning experience for all.

We discovered this by reading the location signs and had some leasure time before visiting our relative. My husband is a Civil War history buff, so this was right up his alley with history in the area. The staff was very pleasant, and knowledgeable. They had a video of a brief history of this Battleground, which we found very informative.... More

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
