Did john sevier lead the battle of kings mountain?

John Sevier, my fifth great grandfather, led 240 of the Overmountain Men at the Battle of Kings Mountain, October 7th, 1780. He borrowed money from the Entry Taker (tax collector), John Adair, at Jonesborough, Tennessee, to pay for the Kings Mountain expedition; food, weapons, powder, lead. The various patriot commanding officers agreed that one of them would be officer of the day each day, and Isaac Shelby was the officer in charge of the patriot army when they attacked the Tory army at Kings Mountain. The patriot victory at Kings Mountain was the turning point of the American Revolution and led to the British surrender at Yorktown, VA in February 1781. Sevier was promoted to Brigadier General and was Tennessee's first governor. Bart Conchin, MSgt, USAF, Retired Past President, The Sevier Family Association

Where was the battle of kings mountain fought in?

The battle took place in South Carolina, about eight miles south of the city of Kings Mountain, North Carolina (which is named for the battle - not the other way around), and six or eight miles east of Blacksburg, South Carolina. Contrary to popular recollections (such as Wikipedia), the battle did not happen on the mountain that's called Kings Mountain, but on an insignificant hill a few miles away. The battle took place there because it's where the Over Mountain Men caught up to Major Patrick Ferguson. It's called the Battle of Kings Mountain because it happened near the mountain (not ON the mountain, as Wikipedia reports). You can get more information about the area at
