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.
