Kings Mountain National Military Park

On Oct. 7, 1780, a group of Patriot militia from what is now Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia defeated British Major Patrick Ferguson and his band of Loyalist forces. Historians consider the Battle of Kings Mountain the "turning point of the Revolutionary War in the South," as it was the first significant Patriot victory following the demise of the Continental Army at Charleston and Camden. The park features a 25-minute film, exhibits and a 1.5-mile self-guided battlefield tour. The park offers opportunities for hiking along the 16 mile hiking trail system. Check the website for upcoming special events.
