This permanent, interpretive exhibit of the Crossing of the Dan is housed on the top floor of The Prizery which overlooks the original Boyd's Ferry site. The exhibit is intended to keep the story alive and bring visitors to Halifax County.
The exhibit is quite unique in that it not only describes a local event, but brings together all the little-known significance of the Southern Campaign.
The Crossing of the Dan can be described as the beginning of the end for Lt. General Charles Cornwallis' British army. The exhibit for this event will become one of the highlights in the history of the Southern Campaign of the Revolutionary War.
