Editorial Reviews

BATTLE FOR KING'S MOUNTAIN: It's American versus American in the mountains of the Carolinas in the most decisive southern battle of the Revolutionary War. Leading Tory riflemen for the Crown is Scottish-born Colonel Patrick Ferguson. Opposing him is American Colonel Isaac Shelby and his sharpshooting militia mountain men. BATTLE OF FALLEN TIMBERS: After a major defeat by Native Americans that left the Ohio frontier vulnerable to repossession by the British, President Washington calls "Mad" Anthony Wayne from retirement to fight a formidable alliance of Ohio Territory tribes and British advisors. In 1794, Wayne prepares for battle. His wild card? A "white Indian" named William Wells.

I found this Video, most educational, and related to a significant segment of my personal heritage. Lt. Col. James Reed (Reid), an Ancestor of mine, and his seven Sons that served under him, all fought in that very significant Battle. Many are of the opinion that winning that particular Battle, was instrumental in winning the Revolutionary War. Highly recommended to lovers of early American History.

From family history, I would say the DVD was historical accurate. It's description of the dress and mood of the Scot Irish was very accurate. However, there were heroes that were never mention. People who helped there and at Cowpens are ignored as they are in most of our history. Only the well known were mentioned. Two of the Bowen Men from Virginia who fought at Point Plesant died there or d/t injuries. But that would have taken some research and I guess it was unimportant to mention them. I wish some one would write an accurate book on the real heroes at Kings Mtn.

Very interesting. Historically accurate. Good film photography.

Every high school history class should be showing this. After all, it was a great turning point in the Revolutionary War.

If it were not for the Battle of King's Mountain and the Battle at Cowpens, instead of the Star Spangled Banner, we might just be singing " God Save the Queen."
