Robert Dunkerly, a Park Ranger, historian, and award-winning author of several local Revolutionary War history books, will present a 30-minute lecture highlighting some of the fun facts from his book The Battle of Kings Mountain: Eyewitness Accounts.  This collection of participant letters and statements from soldiers on both sides includes over one hundred first-hand eyewitness accounts from the Battle of Kings Mountain.  The book is rife with previously unpublished details of this historic turning point in the American Revolution, offering new perspectives and exposing the dramatic details of the battle in the words of the men who lived it.

Dunkerly will be available after his lecture to sign some of his many titles available in the Museum’s Gift Shop, including:

  • The Battle of Kings Mountain: Eyewitness Accounts
  • Women of the Revolution: Bravery and Sacrifice on the Southern Battlefields
  • Kings Mountain Walking Tour Guide

This program is part of Kings Mountain Historical Museum’s 2014 Lecture Series, which will include three presentations through May and June that will provide new perspectives on the Battle of Kings Mountain, a turning point in the American Revolution.  ADMISSION IS FREE!
