Long Description:
This NC historical marker about the Battle of Charlotte is a few hundred feet from the intersection of Trade Street and Tyron Street. It is near the covered bus stop on the same side of Tyron Street as the Bank of America building. If you walk down Tyron Street from the Grande Disco (WMC3GE) to the covered bus stop, the marker is found just beyond the covered bus stop, near a light pole.
The information on the marker is the same on both sides, which says:
"L 18 Battle of Charlotte
Cornwallis's army captured Charlotte after a fight here with Davie's troops, Sept. 26, 1780.
Division of Archives and History 1992"
