There is a sure-fire way to rile up a bunch of Tennesseans: tell them you're going to march your army across the mountains, hang their leaders and lay waste to their lands with fire and sword. Major Patrick Ferguson, serving under Lord Cornwallis with the British Army made that mistake, but only once. A group of Patriots gathered at Sycamore Shoals in eastern Tennessee with the express purpose of shoving Major Ferguson's words down his throat. Two hundred and twenty nine years later, another group of Patriots met at Fort Watauga at the Sycamore Shoals to honor the men who departed from that vicinity to march down to Kings Mountain and give Ferguson and his band of Loyalists their come-uppance. These photos chronicle that event.
