Moores Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Moores Creek begins in northwest Pender County and flows south, passing Moores Creek National Battlefield near Currie before joining the Black River. Moores Creek National Battlefield is a half-mile from the put-in. The 88-acre park commemorates the decisive February 27, 1776 victory by 1,000 Patriots over 1,600 Loyalists at the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge.

The battle ended the Royal Governor’s hopes of regaining control of the colony for the British crown. This first decisive Patriot victory of the Revolutionary War raised morale for Patriots throughout the colonies. The colony of North Carolina voted to declare independence from the British two weeks after the Moores Creek victory. This eTrail contains 1 section of Moores Creek from NC 210 bridge to The Borough access off Borough Spur Road (Pender Co. 1137)."
