The Battle of Guilford Court House March 15, 1781
By this date the English had once again firmly established their military presence within their North Carolina colony. This battle was fought for control of the Greensboro region of North Carolina. A large English military force of close to 6,300 soldiers met and battled a large force of brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, at what is now the city of Greensboro, North Carolina. After the large force of English soldiers had firmly established their military presence in the Greensboro region, we know they were reinforced by large numbers of the male citizens of the city of Greensboro, which obviously increased the numbers of the already large English military force. After the battle commenced, the English military force used their superior numbers and superior weapons to defeat the obviously smaller military force from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, who had long held that city in a siege. White casualties in the battle were 172 killed, 598 wounded, and up to 1,000 captured by the enraged soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation.
