Greensboro is the largest city in the larger Piedmont Triad metropolitan area, including High Point, Lexington, and Winston-Salem.

Greensboro, North Carolina, or the City of Greensboro, is located in the northern piedmont region of North Carolina. Greensboro has the third largest population base in North Carolina. Greensboro is located in and is the county seat of Guilford County. Greensboro’s nickname, Gate City, goes back to what the city was called before it was named Greensborough. Greensborough would eventually be changed to Greensboro as it is spelled today,  

Greensboro was founded in 1808 and named in honor of American Revolutionary War Continental Army Major General Nathanael Greene. Major General Nathanael Greene, known as the Quaker General, was commander of the Continental Army and the American militias in the Southern Campaign during the American Revolution. 

On March 15, 1781, in what is now within the city limits of Greensboro, The Battle of Guilford Court House was fought. While this battle was a Patriot tactical defeat, it was a Patriot strategic victory. The Battle of Guilford Court House was the turning point of the American Revolution. This British “victory” ultimately led to the British surrender at Yorktown on October 19, 1781. The Battle of Guilford Court House was truly a British Pyrrhic victory from which they were unable to recover.

The monumental battle unfolded on March 15, 1781 and lasted less than two hours. This battle was the largest battle to take place during Major General Nathanael Greene’s Southern Campaign. The British commander Lieutenant General Lord Charles Cornwallis’ 2,100-man force was far better trained and equipped than the 4,500-man Patriot force. While being outnumbered, Cornwallis’ defeated Nathanael Greene, but at a considerable cost to his British force. Of his 2,100-man force, Cornwallis had just over 25% casualties. Many of these British casualties were the result of intentional friendly fire ordered directly and purposely by General Cornwallis himself. Major General Greene, while having slightly less casualties, successfully withdrew his forces to fight another day, which was Greene’s operational strategy of hit and run. Member of British Parliament Charles James Fox, a leading critic of England’s struggle to quash the American War of Independence said in response to the British victory at The Battle of Guilford Court House, “Another such victory would ruin the British Army!”

The site of the battle lies within the city limits of Greensboro and has been preserved as Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is located at 2332 New Garden Road, Greensboro, North Carolina. The battlefield, related structures, and monuments are operated and maintained by the federal National Park Service (NPS). 

Guilford County was created in 1771 and Greensboro was first established in 1808. Greensboro was first known as Greene and up until 1895 as Greensborough. In 1808 Guilford County Commissioners purchased 42 acres of land for $98 to form Greensboro, the new county seat. These 42 acres were divided up into 14 blocks of lots for sale. Greensboro was incorporated in 1875, and by 1895 known by its current name and spelling, as Greensboro.  

Greensboro played an important role in the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. Four black college students from NC A&T sat down at a segregated lunch counter in the Greensboro Woolworth and refused to leave after they were denied service because of the color of their skin. They became known as the Greensboro Four. Hundreds of supporters soon joined these four men in their sit-in that lasted for over five months. This Greensboro protest spread to other cities and led to the end of segregated lunch counters at Woolworth’s and other establishments throughout the segregated south.  

Guilford County’s population in the 1790 US Census was 7,30. The population in Guilford County’s 2010 Census was 488,406. The estimated population for Guilford County in 2019 was 537,174. The 1870 US Census for Greensboro was 497. The population for the 2010 US Census for Greensboro was 269,666. Greensboro’s population was estimated for 2019 at just above 296,000.
