Trip Planner: USA / North Carolina / North Carolina Coast / Currie / Moore's Creek National Battlefield
Moores Creek National Battlefield is a battlefield managed by the U.S. National Park Service. The park commemorates the 1776 victory of a thousand patriots over about eight hundred loyalists at Moore's Creek. The battle dashed the hopes of British provincial governor Josiah Martin for regaining control of North Carolina for the Crown. The loyalist defeat simultaneously ended British plans for an invasionary force to land in Brunswick Town. The Second Continental Congress voted to declare independence from the British on July 4, 1776, shortly after the battle; which took place in the Wilmington area near Currie in Pender County in southeastern North Carolina. The national military park was established on June 2, 1926, and was redesignated as a national battlefield on September 8, 1980.Plan to see Moore's Creek National Battlefield and other attractions that appeal to you using our Currie holiday planner.

Off the beaten path, but it was of America's first victories during the Revolutionary War. There is path that takes you through the battlefield. Nice site

What a wonderful park for everyone. 20 minutes north of Wilmington, easy drive. Excellent exhibit giving the history of this site, I was unaware of the magnitude of this battle. Americans fighting Americans, over 2600 men in this fight. The last Scottish Highlander broadsword attack in history. This blew me away. Walk in their footsteps. Great paved walk around the park, just go.
This spot commemorates a little-known but important battle. There were so many like it that took place throughout the Revolution that honoring and remembering them all can be a tough task. This battle was quite unique and this park tells the story well. There are several monuments placed throughout the grounds and the self-guided tour offers a chance for a good walk to get some exercise. I look forward to returning in the future.
