Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry (F.I.L.I.) Armory and Museum

  • Overview

    On August 23, 1793, the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry (F.I.L.I.) was organized after President George Washington enacted the Militia Act. During the Civil War, the F.I.L.I. took over the Fayetteville Arsenal for the Confederate forces. The armory contains historical artifacts, weapons, uniforms, and memorabilia, including the carriage that rode the Marquis de Lafayette during his visit to Fayetteville. The F.I.L.I. is still an active ceremonial unit and is North Carolina's official historic military command.
