Fought in October 1780 between colonist and loyalist militia, the Battle of Kings Mountain may very well have been the turning point in the American Revolution because the patriot victory there paved the way for the end of the war at Yorktown, Virginia, the following year.
Key to the colonists' victory was the primary weapon they used: the American long rifle. Having a greater range and accuracy than the muskets used by the loyalists, it was a deadly advantage in the battle. Bearing an image of that long rifle that contributed so much to the patriot victory, this ornament pays tribute to Kings Mountain National Military Park, South Carolina, as well as this important battle of the American Revolution.
