Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

The small monument in the field commemorates the death of Lt. Col. James Stewart (Stuart) of the Second Battalion of Guards. During hand-to-hand fighting, Captain John Smith of the 1st Maryland Regiment cut down Stewart with a heavy saber.

Accounts place Stewart's death near the American third line. Guildford Battle Ground Company placed the monument on this site because they were told that Stewart's sword was found here inside a hollow log in 1866. In reality, the monument's location is more symbolic than historically accurate.
