Established in 1808, Greensboro, North Carolina's third-largest city, is a charming, vibrant destination. American history lovers can visit the sites of pivotal events.
You can visit the sites of Revolutionary War battles, Civil Rights protests, and the city's profound educational museums to gain valuable insights into the nation's history.
In the 1781 Battle of Guilford Courthouse in Greensboro, American troops proved strong resistance to British soldiers, bringing the U.S. closer to winning its national sovereignty.
Visit Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, where the historic victory was won. The Greensboro History Museum teaches about 18th and 19th-century buildings.
One of the first sit-in protests of the American Civil Rights Movement was in Greensboro. In 1960, the non-violent protest, known as the Woolworth Sit-in, occurred there.
Today, the former Woolworth's store is now the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, where you can see the actual stools where these famous activists took their seats.
