A celebration of the backwoodsmen from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia who marched to Kings Mountain and defeated a Loyalist force, resulting in what Thomas Jefferson called the turning point int he American Revolution.
Sometimes the dead are the lucky ones. The weapons each side in employed during the Battle of King’s Mountain inflicted grievous and dreadfully painful wounds that the comparatively primitive state of medicine at the time could not always heal.
