The Podcast: Kings Mountain
This week’s edition of the podcast is another reading from Hero Tales From American History. In 1780 America’s war for independence was going badly. Georgia and South Carolina had fallen back into British hands, and after defeating General Gates at Camden, Lord Cornwallis proceeded into North Carolina, breathing threats against the homes and families of the patriots who opposed him. This chapter describes the trek of “the Overmountain Men” who turned the British tide and the decisive battle they fought at Kings Mountain! Click here to listen!
