The 243rd Anniversary of the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge Reenactment

The 243rd Anniversary of the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge Reenactment

Feb 23 2019 10:00AM - Feb 24 2019 4:00PM

It has been nearly 243 years since a large Loyalist Militia, mostly Scottish Highlanders wielding swords, charged over a partially dismantled bridge and into the darkness, only to be met by the flashes and sounds of muskets and cannons booming in the distance. Patriot forces walked away that day victorious, and word would soon spread all across the divided British American colonies of this glorious victory. Help us celebrate what is considered to be one of the first Patriot victories of the American Revolution and see history come to life. Over the course of the two-day celebration, visitors will be treated to stories and demonstrations of 18th-century military and colonial life and trades. Weekend activities will include Encampments and demonstrations with cooking, dummy musket drills for the public, weapon displays, storytelling and more. There will also be a Wreath Laying Ceremony and Procession and an Interpretive Demonstration of the Battle, including narration and flag ceremony in honor of those who lost their life in the battle. Both Saturday and Sunday's hours will be 10am-4pm.
