American  Revolution site

Moores Creek National Battlefield is the site of the first Patriot victory in the American Revolution. This pivotal victory in 1776 ended British authority in the colony and stalled British invasion of the South. It also led North Carolina to be the first colony to instruct its delegates to the 1776 Continental Congress to vote for independence. This national park, located in Currie, Pender County, will celebrate the 237th anniversary of the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge on Saturday through Sunday, Feb. 23 and 24.
