Moores Creek National Battlefield
Moores Creek National Battlefield is the site of the first significant victory for the Patriots in the Revolutionary War, and the venue of the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge Reenactment held each February to commemorate it. This battle ended Royal rule in North Carolina forever and helped pave the way for the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Visitor Center is open Wednesday through Sunday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. This includes access to exhibits, the park’s 10-minute film, “In the Most Furious Manner”, the gift shop and America the Beautiful passes.
