When looking at battlefields it's hard to imagine where the soldiers stood. This battlefield gives you that depiction by indicating with flags where the soldiers actually stood, pretty cool!

I visited this site after reading Majoleine Kars excellent book Breaking Loose Together, which chronicles the 1771 Regulator Rebellion and its origins. Alamance was the most important battle of that rebellion, where the British army crushed the Regulators. The modern site is well documented and has physical markers to show the 1771 battle. It is also seriously underfunded. However, this... More

This battlefield, which some consider the start of the American Revolution, commemorates a battle between British regulars and colonial "regulators" in 1771, is a lovely park. We made a last minute decision to stop by and docent Lisa was gracious in giving us a brief but comprehensive summary of the reasons for the battle and what transpired here. On the... More

Bring a picnic, walk the battle field areas and retrace the steps of the brave people of our past. Enjoy the museum and log cabin and learn about NC history.

Incredible site where there is a huge part of not only North Carolina history, but National history. You take a step back in time and can feel the historical events in you soul. Recommend highly that you take time to visit!

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.

I went to see this historic site in the late summer. There are displays of historical artifacts in the visitors center. 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.
