The Park has a few genealogy books & an incomplete listing of soldiers that fought & served during the 1775 & 1781 engagements. We only have records up the time of the Revolution. We do not have documents from the 1800s on or information about families that lived in the area or land records.

Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee got his nickname because of his daring rides against the British. Lee’s Legion wore green uniforms like those of the British Cavalryman Banastre Tarleton. It allowed them to operate in enemy territory & blend with the landscape.
