Easter Sunday walks in the Parks

Spent the late Afternoon walking through Guilford Courthouse Battlefield Park
in Greensboro. It was a Lovely day. Bright, warm sunshine and no Wind at all!

The largest, most hotly-contested battle of the Revolutionary War's Southern
Campaign was fought at the small North Carolina backcounty hamlet of Guilford
Courthouse on March 15, 1781. The battle proved to be the highwater mark of British
military operations in the Revolutionary War. British troops were lead here by Lord Charles
Cornwallis, while the American troops were lead by this man, General Nathanael Greene  

One of the most trusted Generals of the Revolutionary army 
was Nathanael Greene, Washington's friend and comrade-in-arms

We've visited this beautiful Battlefield park many times but I never
get Tired of wandering around it and reading about the Battle

Until next time, General Greene...
