The Battle of Kings Mountain October 7, 1780
This battle took place near Kings Mountain, North Carolina and nearby Blacksburg, South Carolina. A force of many thousands of English soldiers under the command of General Cornwallis, had already marched up from South Carolina, into the English colony of North Carolina, with the instructions to bring North Carolina back under white control. By late September of 1780, the large force of English soldiers had reached the North Carolina city of Charlotte and commenced to prepare for more combat against the brave soldiers of the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, who still controlled the North Carolina region. Another large force of English soldiers was attempting to reach General Cornwallis and his troops in early October of 1780, but from their scouts the military commanders of the Southern Anishinabe Confederation learned of their intentions, then they assembled many of their brave soldiers to reach the large force of over 2,000 English soldiers under the command of English Major Patrick Ferguson, to attempt to stop them from further strengthening the even larger force under General Cornwallis’s command. In the battle that followed, the brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, eventually overwhelmed the large force of English soldiers, forcing them to surrender. After the English attempted two bayonet charges, they eventually disintegrated as a military unit and after several hours of fighting the battle ended. The victorious Southern Anishinabe Confederation inflicted heavy casualties on the large force of English soldiers under Major Ferguson’s command. That means the Indian and black military force, was about as large as that of the white military force or even larger. White casualties were 273 killed, 219 wounded, and 668 captured then probably killed later on or enslaved.
