Greensboro is North Carolina's third largest city in population. The city spreads across 121 square miles of Guilford County. Greensboro made its mark on early American history as the site of a pivotal Revolutionary War battle in 1781. Almost 200 years later the city was the site of another historic event--the Woolworth lunch counter sit-ins in February 1960. The sit-ins were nationally influential in the civil rights movement. Greensboro is home to a number of institutions of higher learning, including UNC-G, N.C. A.&T., Bennett College, Greensboro College, and Guilford College. Visitors will find attractions such as the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, Greensboro Farmer's Market, and the Greensboro Grasshoppers, a minor league baseball team.
