KINGS MOUNTAIN NATIONAL MILITARY PARK

The 2- week march of the Patriot militia, known as the Overmountain Men, and hunt for British Major Patrick Ferguson culminated at the fierce Battle of Kings Mountain on October 7, 1780. Thomas Jefferson referred to the Patriot victory  as "the turn of the tide of success," because it marked the beginning of the turn of the Revolutionary War to favor the American side. This year marks the 237th anniversary of this important victory in our nation's history.
