Revolutionary War Battle Reenactment



  • 288 Alston House Road
    Sanford NC 27330


Come visit the House in the Horseshoe and see a reenactment of the Revolutionary War skirmish between Col. Alston's Patriot militia and the Loyalists of Col. David Fanning. During the ensuing skirmish, Fanning's forces attempted to light the house on fire by rolling against it a cart filled with burning straw. The house was left riddled with bullet holes, many of which can still be seen today. Visitors can wander through Colonial militia encampments, watch various demonstrations from the colonial period, and military drills will be held, complete with musket and cannon firing.

Food trucks will be on site.

Admission: Free. Parking fee $5
