Battle of Ramsour’s Mill Living History Weekend

The Battle of Ramsour's Mill Living History Weekend commemorates the June 20, 1780 Battle of Ramsour's Mill, when Whigs met Tories on a hillside just outside the little town of Lincolnton.

In 2023, the commemoration will take place the weekend of June 17 & 18 beginning with the laying of wreaths at the resting place of some 70 unknown in a grave near Battleground Elementary School.

In between, hearth cooking demonstrations by the Lincoln County Hearth Cooks, reenactments and weapons demonstrations, a militia encampment, tours, heritage demonstrations, and period crafts.

Suitable for all ages, and FREE.


HOW TO GET THERE: Activities will be staged in and around the Christian Reinhardt cabin behind Battleground Elementary School and near the Lincolnton High School Football Stadium. Come to Lincolnton High School and follow the signs to the festival site.
