Starting every hour on the hour, between 9 AM and 4 PM, this film is a dramatic, live action recreation of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. The film takes the viewer back to North Carolina in the late winter of 1781 as two armies contest the cause of American independence in the South. Beginning at the small hamlet of Guilford Courthouse, the American rebel army of Major General Nathanael Greene is preparing to make a stand against Lord Charles Cornwallis’ smaller, but determined British army. The film puts the viewer there as events unfold—in the line of march and in the midst of action—to hear the sounds of battle and the words of soldiers and civilians, and to share the emotional strain on those whose lives are affected.

Another Such Victory is shown in the main theater, located in the Visitors Center.
