The first issue is that Apple Maps and the site are not linked, so all the iphone apps take you to the cemetary and not the battlefield site. The Ranger on site is very nice, and the films are lovely, but there needs to be...More

Site of a pivotal 1781 battle in the Revolutionary War's Southern Campaign, Guilford Courthouse today is Greensboro's favorite walking site. You can view filmed recreation of the battle in the main building. Audio tapes for walkers offer expert commentary at key sections of the battlefield.

Just got your question. Hope this answer isn't too late. I spent about 30 minutes there since I teach US History and the staff was overly accommodating to me. There is a brief film and the outside buildings.

There are no picnic areas in the battlefield park out if respect. What the others here are referring to is called Country Park which is right next to the battlefield. There are short trails between them.

You can call 336-525-3009 and it will start the tour. It also sends you a link to the web site that was a little easier to use.
