Sharyn McCrumb is an award-winning Southern writer, best known for her Appalachian “Ballad” novels, including the New York Times best sellers The Ballad of Frankie Silver and She Walks These Hills. Her 2013 novel King’s Mountain tells the story of the battle from the points of view of Patriot militia colonel John Sevier and Tory camp follower Virginia Sal. The novel brings to life a little-known story of the American Revolution: how the Overmountain Men, an unpaid, unequipped volunteer army of Appalachian frontiersmen, set off in search of the enemy and won a battle against well-trained British troops, thus giving the colonists renewed hope of victory.
This program is presented as part of Kings Mountain Historical Museum’s 2014 Lecture Series, and is one of three presentations occurring through May & June that will provide new perspectives on the Battle of Kings Mountain, a turning point in the American Revolution. ADMISSION IS FREE!
