This is the site of one of the first battles in the South during the Revolutionary War and the first significant Patriot victory of the war. Throughout the park, remnants remain of the 1776 road traveled by patriot and loyalist forces. Trail with wayside exhibits leads through the battlefield and across Moores Creek. The historic bridge site is located along the trail. The park offers a visitor center with exhibits, lighted troop movement maps and film; a Colonial forest trail, and a picnic area. The park's 88 acres encompass a variety of landscapes ranging from dry pine forests to a small, wet-pine savanna. Moores Creek travels through the park and is a tidally influenced "black water" creek with considerable cypress growth. The site is also part of the NC Birding Trail, which means it's a wonderful place to see a variety of birds.
