The park has Traveling Trunks available to schools that cannot bring their students to the park or for teachers who would like to do pre-visit lessons with their students. The trunks can be picked up from Kings Mountain NMP or shipped to the school, however the trunks are rather large.
To request a trunk call the park at 864-936-7921.
Just some of the items included in the trunk are:
-maps of the Kings Mountain Battlefield and other battles fought in the Carolinas
Did You Know?
Only about 100 of Ferguson's men wore red coats, the other 900 or so were local Loyalist militia. The Patriots wore white paper in their hats, the Loyalists used a pine sprig in their hats. As the battle of Kings Mountain went on many Loyalists tore out their pine spring to switch sides.
