Guilford Courthouse, North Carolina.

The Revolutionary Oak
This tree stood in the center of New Garden Burying Ground. Here the first skirmish of the Battle of Guildford Court House occurred 3D. Month 1781.

“Nearby are the cornerstones of the original Friends’ Meeting House, used as a hospital during the battle. The men who died were laid to rest under this oak.

“This tablet placed by Rachel Caldwell Chapter, N.S.D.A.R.”
