Field Trips

Tour Reservations and Field Trip Planning

Every year, Guilford Courthouse National Military Park serves large audiences of elementary school, middle school, high school, and special interest groups with formal tours. These tours require a reservation at least two weeks prior to the intended date.

To schedule a tour or request materials for loan, please call the Park Interpretation Staff at (336) 288-1776 or email You must speak with a Park Ranger in order to attend a field trip. Minimum group size = 10 students and educators.

Teachers can show our films to their class before the field trip on our Park's YouTube Channel! This channel features the park's film Another Such Victory as well as virtual battlefield tours, combat videos, explorations into the colonial days, and short videos about the people affected by the war. Another Such Victory is appropriate for ages 8 and older due to the depiction of war and a hospital scene.

Depending on staff and volunteer availability, educators may request the following programs:

Guided tour of the Hoskins farm. Potential living history demonstrations and/or a musket firing demonstration are available if requested two months in advance.

How to Map a Battlefield
  • How has the landscape changed? What did the battlefield look like in 1781 and how did the terrain affect the battle? Students rediscover the lost art of map making and create their very own maps of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse.
Monumental History
  • There are 29 monuments, memorials, and/or gravesites at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. How do you remember an event or someone important to you? Students learn about reasons for commemoration and design their own monuments through a fun, hands-on activity.
Cartooning History
  • Political cartoons were the memes of the 18th century. How did Americans use political cartoons to express their political views before and during the Revolution? Students draw political cartoons around Revolutionary War events.
