Jr. Ranger Day at Moores Creek National Battlefield

Moores Creek National Battlefield to Host Jr. Ranger Day - Saturday, April 28, 2018
Currie, NC - Join Moores Creek National Battlefield this Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. for a FREE family-friendly event that is fun for all ages.

Several Living Historians will be set up in the Patriots Field Demonstration Area providing hands-on demonstrations of 18th Century Colonial Trades and Military Life. March with the Militia; make musket cartridges with fellow Minutemen; wear a kilt alongside other Loyalists; help knead the dough of a soldier's loaf; handle colonial clothing and learn what you may have worn if you lived in Colonial times; watch the Blacksmith make hooks and other useful products out of metal; see what's growing in the garden.

Then take a hike along the History Trail and see where Pvt. John Grady, Col. Alexander Lillington, Col. Richard Caswell and other brave Patriots defended Moores Creek Bridge during that historic battle. When you are done exploring, stop by the Visitor Center and get sworn in as official Jr. Rangers and get your official Jr. Ranger Badge and Certificate.
