Overview

In order to compare the tactics of the Battle of Kings Mountain with the tactics of the other battles of the American Revolution, one must consider the topography of the battlefield. The battlefield ridge is a spur of the Kings Mountain range, a monadnock formation which rises above the surrounding plateau. The ridge runs northeast to southwest and was covered with a mature hardwood forest with scattered stands of pine.
