Some of you had requested directions, schedules, and locations for Guilford Courthouse.
Mapquest would not let me copy directions, and the National Park Website would not let me copy the schedule. So, here are the sites you can go to for the information.
Physical Address for the encampment:
Greensboro Country Park
3905 Nathanael Green Drive
Greensboro, NC 27455-1636
National Park Website:

The map will show a public entrance through Jaycee Park. That is where we have entered in years past. When you enter there,just drive all the way to the end of the Jaycee Park parking lot and there will be an entrance to Country Park. The information trailer should be just inside that entrance.
I hope this is of a help to everyone.

From the Colonel:
It was not unusual for the era for armies to induct many who did not
know “left” from “right.” they would place a piece of straw/hay into the
sole of the left shoe or toe of the left bare foot. Commands would then
begin with, “By the Hay foot, March, and cxontinue with, instead of
“Left – Left – Right- Left,’ with “Hay Foot- Hay Foot – Right – Hay
Foot.” I am sure we will have a spare firearm or even our colors if
Doug had them finished.
