Celebrate America's 224th birthday with the National Register of Historic Places Teaching with Historic Places. To honor Independence Day and generate public appreciation for our nation's history, Teaching with Historic Places is featuring five online lesson plans that are related to America's battle for independence and the creation of our nation. Joining lesson plans on the Battle of Bunker Hill, the Liberty Bell, The Washington Monument, and Glen Echo Plan, is the newly posted "Guilford Courthouse: A Pivotal Battle in the War for Independence." This new lesson plan, written for students and educators alike, highlights the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, where British general Lord Charles Cornwallis lead his 1,900 British regulars against American Major General Nathanael Greene's army of 4,400 troops stationed near the Guilford Courthouse, in North Carolina. Although the battle was technically a British victory, the serious losses of manpower left the British too weak to occupy outposts in North Carolina or pursue the defeated, but intact, American Army. Soon Lord Cornwallis would make the decision to march into Virginia, where he would face defeat at Yorktown. The lesson plan, with maps, readings, visual images and activities, can be found at our Independence Day feature online at Teaching with Historic Places.
