Description
Moores Creek National Battlefield is about 20 miles northwest of Wilmington and 4 miles west of US 421, on SR 210 near the town of Currie. The 87-acre site was the scene of a brief but decisive Revolutionary War battle on Feb. 27, 1776. Victory by the Colonists prevented the Loyalists from controlling North Carolina and helped block a British campaign to conquer the Southern colonies.
A re-enactment takes place annually the last full weekend in February. Visitor center displays and an audiovisual program depict the battle; there also are two self-guiding trails with interpretive exhibits. Guided tours are available; advance reservations are required. Picnicking is permitted. Site open daily 9-5. Visitor Center open Wed.-Sun. 9-5. Closed federal holidays. Free. Phone (910) 283-5591.
