On the Guilford Battleground near Greensboro is a monument to the exploits of Peter Francisco, giant of the American Revolution. He was said to have performed a deed of unparalleled bravery, cutting down eleven men with his sword, although badly wounded. At the battle of Camden, horses drawing a cannon were killed and Francisco shouldered the gun weighting eleven hundred pounds and carried it where it was needed.
