Sharyn McCrumb’s new ballad novel is “King’s Mountain.” John Sevier had not taken much interest in the Revolutionary War, but when threatened by the Loyalists with invasion and the loss of their land, he and his loyal comrades – many who would later play key roles in the later parts of American History – raised an unpaid volunteer militia of more than a thousand men. They allied themselves with other state Militias and marched toward Charleston in search of Thomas Ferguson’s marauding army. On a hill straddling the North and South Carolina lines, known as King’s Mountain, they defeated the British forces, inspiring the colonies to fight on. This battle was later called “the turning point of the American Revolution.”
