Took my 4 year old grandson to the reenactment of the 1771 battle of Alamance. It was excellent. He thoroughly enjoyed himself. I wish that the staff had interacted with him more but all in all it was worth the $2 admission!

Drove out to see the battlefield and was pleased to find various period tents, cabins and monuments. Happy to learn more about the local history. Much of the area is shaded which was terrific on a warm afternoon.

Alamance Battleground is a fascinating site, providing visitors the opportunity to learn about one of the most important events leading up to the Revolutionary War. One of my ancestors was a Regulator, so visiting the site of the Regulators' rebellion held special meaning for me. Like all state historic sites, there is no charge to visit Alamance Battleground, but donations... More

Very nice, well kept historical attraction. The main building has a showcase of relics as well as souvenirs. There is also a short video. The only shortcoming is the quality of video..it looked to be a VCR, but it did the job giving you a good historical perspective. The outside grounds are open and nicely kept. Across the road is...

We enjoyed visiting the battlefield and learning about the beginnings of the Revolutionary War. Previously we have only visited the US Civil War sites and were excited to learn more of the US early history. Great place to take your children for a hands on experience.

We visited here on a soggy day and took a circuitous route around puddles to finally arrive at the monuments in the middle of this otherwise vacant, large field. The history here is shocking because its importance was somehow forgotten. Unimpressive grounds with an enormously impressive history.

It was interesting to learn that this battleground was a big part of NC history. Got to watch a video before exploring the grounds and a historical farm house.

Great view into the past. School groups go regularly for educational presentations of the ways of life during revolutionary times. There are also battleground encampments with soldiers going about their daily lives. An authentic cabin with women doing their household jobs is also there. Check the calendar to find dates of the exhibitions.

I took the kids out to explore the historic site of Alamance Battleground during Colonial Living Week. All of the demonstrators were quite knowledgeable about the history of the area in addition to their skills. For instance, we learned from a very serious blacksmith the significance of his role in early American culture, from what he did to how he... More
