    Neat little battlefield to visit.

    Not too far from Jumonville Glen.

    This was the largest "all American" battle of the Revolutionary War. No British involved.

    President Hoover once said "This is a place of inspiring memories. Here less than a thousand men, inspired by the urge of freedom, defeated a superior force entrenched in this strategic position. This small band of Patriots turned back a dangerous invasion well designed to separate and dismember the united Colonies. It was a little army and a little battle, but it was of mighty portent. History has done scant justice to its significance, which rightly should place it beside Lexington, Bunker Hill, Trenton and Yorktown."

    Name the battle

    Name the battle
    King's Mountain, SC OCT 1780 (I visited the battlefield in April of this year). It featured the Patriot Overmountain men against Loyalist Militia under the command of LTC Patrick Ferguson.

    One correction Gunny. Ferguson was a Scotsman and was killed in the battle. He was the only Brit.
