Excellent protrayal of the NC Jr. Reserves by the reenactor group. Also had folks in the John Allen cabin cooking and sewing. Diane and Lisa did an excellent job! Very interesting. You also don't want to miss the 245th anniversary of Battle of Alamance reenactment on May 14 - 15. Great event for all ages.

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
