Nathanael Greene's statue, the largest in the park, looks like the monument of a victor. But by the end of the day the British had forced him from the field.

The fighting did not go according to plan for either side. After an orderly retreat, Greene expressed disappointment in the results of the battle. As reports trickled in, however, it became clear that the British army had suffered severe casualties. Cornwallis and his weakened army retired to the North Carolina coast. The battle for Guilford Courthouse set the stage for Yorktown.
