    Established in the late 18th century, the parade ground was the site where the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry (F.I.L.I.) company has assembled for drill since their formation in 1793. The F.I.L.I. is still North Carolina's official historic military command and ceremonies with current members still take place on these grounds. At this site, Isaac Hammond, the company's fifer and a free black man who served in the Revolutionary War, is buried.
