Abstract:
The Southern campaign of the American Revolution came to a climax in Guilford County on March 15, 1781. Some 4,000 Americans, under the command of Nathanael Greene, waited as Lord Cornwallis approached from the west. Although some men ran from their lines, others fought hard to drive down the British ranks, who continued to push forward despite flanks of riflemen. The men often fought hand-to-hand, but Cornwallis gained the ground, losing many of his own men in the battle. Despite controversy over those who ran, a monument stands to one of the brave, Peter Francisco, at Guilford Battleground.
