Background

  • from History of Kilgore Family and Related Families, 1935

In 1779 the British changed their plan because they were achieving no decided results in the North. Their plan now was the attempt again to subdue the Southern Colonies. The British forces gained control of all the important points of Georgia. The American forces made a desperate assault to take Savannah from the British but were repulsed with the loss including Count Pulaski and Sergeant Jasper, distinguished patriots.

In 1780 Sir Henry Clinton laid siege to Charleston, South Carolina, and it was taken after being much destroyed by bombardment. Hell was on all sides in South Carolina, nearly every part of the State was overrun and pillaged. All now seemed lost to the Americans.

The Battle of Kings Mountain, October 7, 1780

Patriots from Southwest Virginia, Northwestern North Carolina, and Eastern Tennessee arose in arms and went to meet the British. God bless this section of country. It should be dearly loved by every man, woman and child in the United States. It is one of God's garden spots for freedom.

These patriots met at Cowpens, South Carolina, selected eleven hundred of their best men and horses. The Virginians were under William Campbell, those from North Carolina were under Generals John Sevier and Isaac Shelby.

They marched all night through the rain and on the morning of October 7, 1780, they arrived at Kings Mountain. The British twelve hundred strong having had the advantage of selecting their positions for fighting, but the battle all the same was on. One regiment of the Americans made an attack and retreated, and were being charged by the British when another American regiment appeared on the mountain top from the opposite direction.

The two armies were now on an equal footing as regards position, with the British having the advantage of one hundred men. But there was no counting of men, for the battle was a life and death struggle, and so was the American cause. There was the clang of sabers, the charge and counter-charges of cavalry. The patriots were fighting with nerves of iron and hearts of steel the conquering invaders. There was in the shriek, the havoc, the bloody struggle, the moan of wounded and dying men, the groans of wounded horses and the neighing of riderless ones, all unheard because of the canon roar.

When the battle ended as all battles must end, the British General was dead. Four hundred and fifty-six of the British army were killed or wounded, and the balance were taken as prisoners. Not a single one escaped. Never in history was such a battle fought, never on earth such a rebuke to British tyranny. The Americans there truly fired the shot heard around the world.

As Thomas Jefferson said it was the turning point of the war. This battle drove home to Great Britain the fact dawning with streaks of light that the patriots of America could not be conquered in a territory or wilderness spread-out over this great continent.

Colonel Campbell's Virginians, who fought so nobly and persistently throughout the action, met with severer losses than any other regiment engaged in the hard day's contest. Of the killed were eleven officers and one private. One lieutenant and one ensign who were mortally wounded, died a few days thereafter. One captain, two lieutenant and eighteen privates were wounded, who recovered. The makes thirty-five killed and wounded of Campbell's Virginians as given in "Kings Mountain and its Heroes" by Draper, page 304.

A national monument has been erected by the U.S. government at the battle field of Kings Mountain in memory of all the American heroes who fought there.

Aftermath

The British made another attempt at the invasion of North Carolina and Virginia. This time under the command of the chieftain, Lord Cornwallis. General Washington came up and joining forces with LaFayette and Count Rochambeau besieged Cornwallis in Yorktown where he surrendered on October 19, 1781.

The result was that the sovereignty of Great Britain was at an end in the American colonies, the British flag trailed in the dust, and the American flag floating lawfully, and independently, and gloriously in the free air of America. The first settlers of the colonies, and others who followed, braved the seas to enjoy civil liberty and to worship according to the dictates of their own conscience. They realized the great need and advantage of having the freedom of the soul, and to worship God according to their own convictions. These were gained with the redress of all wrongs set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

Profiles

Notables

The leader of the Loyalists troops, Major Patrick Ferguson was the only British regular to serve at Kings Mountain. All the other soldiers were Americans, either Patriots or British Loyalists. Joining the British army at age 15, Ferguson was a well-known marksman and the inventor of a very unique breechloading rifle. The son of a Scottish judge, Ferguson had a pleasant disposition, a gentle face and slight build, but nonetheless his soldiers nicknamed him "Bulldog."

Loyalists who fought at the Battle of Kings Mountain

One "definitive" listing of the Loyalist participants at the Battle of Kings Mountain has been compiled by J. D. Lewis (2105) at http://www.carolana.com/SC/Revolution/Known_Loyalists_at_Kings_Mountain.pdf, based upon the works of

  1. The Loyalists at Kings Mountain by Bobby Gilmer Moss (1998) [primary sources included Draper Manuscripts, Cornwallis Papers, British Treasury Payrolls and Muster Rolls, Public Archives of Canada, and County Court Records from NC, SC, and GA
  2. Lt. Anthony Alliare’s Diary (1780)
  3. Lt. Alexander Chesney’s Journal (1775-1820)

However, Lewis's list only contains 6 men from Rutherford (formerly Tryon) County under the command of Col. Ambrose Mills, who reportedly had mustered around a hundred soldiers for the Loyalist cause. These include MMaj. William Mills, Capt. Jonas Bradford and Capt. William Green; John Logan and Thomas Logan. It also lists the Rutherford County Regiment of Loyalist Militia (NC)[Commander unknown] with Capt. Aaron Bickerstaff [Biggerstaff], Capt. James Chitwod, Capt. Water Gilkey, a Capt. Grimes, Lt. John Bibby, Lt. Lafferty, and John Goforth--all of whom were captured and then hanged for treason at Biggerstaff's Farm, along with Col. Ambrose Mills.

The following list from a county document provides names of 112 men from that county who were declared treasonous and had their "goods & chattles lands & tenements" confiscated by the State of North Carolina, many of them posthumously, in 1782.

Cultural references

  • In the 1835 novel Horse-Shoe Robinson by John Pendleton Kennedy, a historical romance set against the background of the Southern campaigns in the American War of Independence, Ferguson appears and interacts with the fictional characters in the book, en route to the climactic scene in which he is killed in the Battle of Kings Mountain.
  • In Louis L'amour's 1973 book The Ferguson Rifle, Ferguson stops by a poor family home on his way to the Battle of King's Mountain and kindly gives his personal copy of the Ferguson rifle to a boy who later carries it West. Ferguson is shown to be a gentleman who displays all the appropriate social graces to a lady (the boy's ill mother) and compassion to a family in need by giving up his personal firearm asking only that the boy keep it always, and never use it against the king. (p7)
  • In Steve Ressel's 2010 novel "State Of One", Ferguson is the main antagonist against James Pariah, a former soldier under Ferguson's command during the Battle of the Brandywine in 1777. Ferguson had been resurrected as a golem by the Leeds Witch with hopes of raising a golem army of similar soldiers, all armed with Ferguson rifles, to destroy the ratification of the US Constitution in September 1787. James Pariah cleaves to his old Ferguson rifle, sometimes referring to it as his wife, having modified it with special actions such as a spring-loaded knife in the stock.
