Cntil recently the Battl of Moors' Creek,
fought February 27th, 1776, had only a tradition
ary and local existence, or at most a passing no
tic, in American history. And yet no battht of
th Revolution so thoroughly illustrate Ameri

amongst tha decisive Nutional Battles of th War
of ndependencet
Jones, Carutlters, 8win, Wiley, Wheeler and

distinction and fame.
The Battle of Moore's Creek was fought at an
early period of the Kerolution, and is the first
battle fought within th I'S, in which, victory
lurched ou th American s'taa. So that In North
Carolina not only belongs th signal Ktavor of
