On a mild Saturday, historical re-enactors crossed the Dan River on a flat-bottomed boat much as General Nathanael Greene and troops did on Feb. 14, 1781 as they outwitted and outmaneuvered the pursuing British Army in Halifax County. The 2017 Crossing of the Dan commemoration — highlighted by speaker Dan McMichael, appearing in character as Gen. Greene — drew a large turnout with remarks and patriotic presentations at The Prizery in the morning, followed later by activities at the Crossing of the Dan site at the river’s edge. Presentations of wreaths were conducted by the Sons of the Revolution and Daughters of the American Revolution with the Guilford Courthouse Fifes and Drums, the Danville Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol and spectators, local officials and guests adorned in Colonial-era garb on hand to enjoy the festivities.
