We learned some of North Carolina's history by stopping here. In 1771, an armed rebellion of farmers called Regulators battled with the royal governor William Tryon's militia. The Regulators were crushed, but their tactics became a model for colonists fighting the British in the American...More

Park historian was very informative and helpful. Went beyond the normal standard to give us a comprehensive overview and answer questions. Also, a good film recreating the battle. There are markers with details posted around the battle site, all within easy walking distance. Certainly worth...More

Not what I expected. "The Battle of Alamance" not knowing the history first before I visited was a mistake. If I knew the history, I would have done something else.

All Central NC residents, especially those with long family connections with the area, should be familiar with this story. It is sad that relatively few people have an appreciation for this fascinating, and much neglected gem.

The 1771 Battle of Alamance was not very famous... but to the greater Burlington, NC area, it was very important. The local resistance (called "Regulators") against Governor Tyron and his 1000 English forces did not prevail, but showed great courage in standing up and fighting...More

I accidentally stumbled upon this battleground looking for bike trails, and I was pleasantly surprised. As soon as I walked in they offered to show me a historical film over the events that transpired on their grounds years ago. The film was about 20 minutes...More

This is a fine place to have a picnic. You need to bring your food with you because there is none for sale on site. There is a re-enactment of sorts on May19- 20. This would be a perfect time to visit. However if you’re not... More
