Battle of Charlotte Monument

Marker 1

When the British invaded North Carolina in the fall of 1780, Charlotte was of vital importance. Four major battles occurred within 90 miles of Charlotte. The resistance of the people in the Carolinas and their hostility to the British helped to turn the tide of the war and led to victory at Yorktown, Virginia.
