A lot of people don't know about the battle of Kings Mountain, but it was a key to victory in the Revolutionary War. Fought in October 1780 it was a turning point in the war in the south. If you saw the movie "The Patriot," some of the events at Kings Mountain are portrayed in it. We were there in December, and it wa spretty empty of tourists, which for us wa sgreat, but the Visitor Center was open and the staff extremely well informed about the battle and were also very courteous. There was no charge and the exhibits, monuments, and free brochures made it a very worthwhile side trip on our way to Asheville.
