Twas the Night before Kings Mountain at Cowpens Nat'l Battlefield

At 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, behind the Cowpens National Battlefield Visitor Center, the Overmountain Victory Trail Association, which annually retraces the 330-mile march that patriot militia took to Kings Mountain in 1780, will present a special program about the events that took place at the Cowpens that night before the Revolutionary War battle of Kings Mountain. The 45-minute program will explain why the overmountain men were coming from Tennessee and Virginia to meet the British at Kings Mountain, South Carolina; how the patriots chose those who would continue on the march to Kings Mountain; and what other events occurred that night before the great patriot victory over the British on the following day.
