We Bet You Didn’t Know That North Carolina Is Home To One Of The Only Monuments To Women On An American Revolutionary War Battlefield

Moores Creek National Battlefield is home to the historically important Mary Slocumb, one of the only monuments dedicated to women in Currie, North Carolina, and the nation, on an American Revolutionary War battlefield. The striking memorial has been beautifying the grounds since 1907. It honors Slocumb and her ride to Moores Creek Bridge at the time of the battle in 1776. Did you know that women played such important roles in the American Revolution? We are not surprised. 

Visit The National Park Service’s website for more information about Moores Creek National Battlefield and the monuments dedicated to women in Currie, North Carolina.

And for lunch, drive about 30 minutes to Wilmington’s only floating restaurant.
