Fought in October 1780 between colonist and loyalist militia, the Battle of Kings Mountain proved to be a patriot victory that paved the way for the end of the war at Yorktown, Virginia, the following year. But what was the reason for the colonist militia's success? Their greatest advantage was probably the primary weapon they used: the American long rifle, a lethal advantage because it had greater accuracy and range than the muskets of their enemies.
Along with the words Kings Mountain National Military Park, this embroidered patch bears an illustration of that superior rifle, commemorating not only the park in South Carolina that preserves the battle site but also the patriots who fought there.
