Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Courthouse?
The courthouse would have been located in the vicinity of Tour Stop 6, but its actual location is an archaeological mystery! The original courthouse was poorly built and fell into disrepair in the 19th century.

Does the park have a list of the soldiers who fought in the battle?

The park does have a card file and records of over 90% of the estimated 4500 American soldiers who fought in the battle of Guilford Courthouse. Each card in the file will list name and basic service information along with one or more sources for the information given. The park library and/or historical files will usually house these sources. The file is, of course, not complete, so you are invited to supply information to this on-going project.
