Thanks for the comments!

It is a shame when people resort to violence to resolve conflict, but to be clear, the Battle of Guilford Courthouse took place in 1781 and was a pivotal point in the American Revolutionary War. It was a tactical defeat for the American patriots, but a strategic battle that ultimately turned the tide against the British. The book "Guilford Courthouse 1781" shown in today's post is subtitled "Lord Cornwallis's Ruinous Victory". Click on the book to buy from Amazon.

The tragic American Civil War occurred a few generations later in the 1860's. We'll feature photos related to that era in future posts.
