Moore's Creek National Battlefield, Currie

Battlefield · Tourist Spot
Moores Creek National Battlefield is a United States National Battlefield managed by the National Park Service. The park commemorates the 1776 victory by a thousand Patriots over about eight hundred Loyalists at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge. The battle dashed the hopes of Royal Governor Josiah Martin of the Province of North Carolina for regaining control of the colony for the British crown. The Loyalist defeat ended British plans for an invasionary force to land in Brunswick Town, North Carolina. North Carolina voted to declare independence from the British on April 12, 1776, shortly after the victory at Moore's Creek, which is located in the Wilmington area near Currie in Pender County in southeastern North Carolina. The park was established as a National Military Park on June 2, 1926 and was redesignated as a National Battlefield on September 8, 1980.

  • Great small park. Free to visit like most national battlefields. There are plenty of trails to walk and see the sites of the Moores Creek battle. The welcome center also shows a short film teaching about the battle and its importance to our nation. Well worth a visit!
  • Jason at the visitor center was a great guide ~ provided a lot of historical information on the events that took place! The trail is super easy to walk, full of informative posters, lovely monuments, and beautiful scenery. There is also a picnic area that's peaceful and quiet for those who bring something to eat. The bathrooms were very clean. This is a great place to visit!
