As the sun rises over the woods, a group of the militia known as the Overmounain Men marches through. These American patriots are mostly of Scotch-Irish descent who have settled in the Tennessee, Kentucky area. They are chasing after British Major Patrick Ferguson to keep him from sending soldiers after the Patriots loved ones. Patrick Ferguson proclaimed to the over Mountain Men that if they did not lay down their weapons and surrender that he would attack them and lay waste to the countryside. In response to Ferguson’s threats, the patriots band together and chase after him. Though at first the Overmountain Men were outnumbered, their strength grew as they traveled. At King’s Mountain, after weeks of marching, the militia ambushes and defeats Major Ferguson and his troops. Thus, the brave Scotch-Irish settlers defend their homes from the threat of the invading British and win a critical battle for liberty.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief story regarding the Overmountain Men and the War for American Independence. We are free because of the bravery of men like these Scotch-Irish settlers, don’t forget their legacy.
