Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

This monument honors the three North Carolina delegates to the Continental Congress who signed the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776. Although Hooper and Penn were reburied here in 1894, they had no direct ties to the battle.

The relation is more symbolic; the Guilford Battle Ground Company founders wanted Guilford Courthouse to be North Carolina's official Revolutionary War cemetery. Between the Declaration and Guilford Courthouse, between these signers and this battlefield, the Company's message was clear: winning and independence required courage, determination, and sacrifice.
