Guilford Battleground Company is a non-profit support organization of the Guilford Court House National Military Park. An act of incorporation was passed by the legislature and ratified on March 7, 1887 with the stated purpose that the corporation would exist “for the benevolent purpose of preserving and adorning the grounds on and over which the battle of Guilford Courthouse was fought” and the “erection thereon of monuments, tombstones, or other memorials to commemorate the heroic deeds of the American patriots who participated in this battle for liberty and independence.” These actions by David Schenck and the members of the Guilford Battle Ground Company marked one of the first steps in the United States to preserve a battlefield of the American Revolution. Battle of Guilford Courthouse Reenactment takes place in Greensboro’s Country Park in March of each year.
