GREENSBORO, N.C. — A man had to be taken to the hospital after falling off a horse during a Battle of Guilford reenactment Sunday in Greensboro.

The victim was taken to Moses Cone Hospital after authorities responded shortly after 2:30 p.m. at 3905 Nathanael Greene Drive, according to Guilford County EMS.

It happened at Greensboro Country Park near the cemetery. The identity of the victim and the extent of the injuries have not been released.

A witness said the victim was playing the part of an American cavalryman and was loaded into an ambulance with a neck brace.

The Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department sponsors the annual Reenactment of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse at Greensboro Country Park every March. This year’s reenactment took place this weekend.

The Battle of Guilford Court House was fought on March 15, 1781, at a site now in Greensboro during the American Revolutionary War.
