Battle of Ramsour's Mill Reenactment - 240th Celebration!

Saturday, June 6, 2020

Battle Weekend is produced by the Lincoln County Historical Association.

It's a living history weekend of Revolutionary War reenactments and music, period cooking, colonial crafts, firearms demonstrations, battle site tours and a wreath-laying ceremony at the mass gravesite.

Lincolnton's early settlers played a pivotal role in the American Revolution when neighbors were pitted against one another as 1000 loyalists and about 400 patriots clashed in The Battle of Ramsour’s Mill on June 20, 1780. The casualties were high and equally divided, with an estimated seventy men killed and more than two hundred wounded.
The loyalist defeat to a much smaller patriot militia is said to have prevented General Cornwallis from winning North Carolina for the British crown.

Today, the patriot victory is commemorated each year with The Battle Weekend Reenactment celebrating historic Battleground Park as the site of this historically significant battle and Patriot victory.
