The Battle of King 's Mountain was a military dispute between Britain and America. The battlefield that the British and American Forces fought on during the Battle of King 's Mountain was located in Near Blackburn, South Carolina and King 's Mountain, North Carolina. Charles Cornwallis, the British commander, seemed to have a clear path all the way to Virginia and that American refusal was at an end. In September, General Cornwallis invaded North Carolina and ordered Major Patrick Ferguson to lead an expedition to the settlements on the lower slopes of the Alleghany Mountains to get recruits, because there were many loyalists in the region. Ferguson stimulated the Mountain Men living in the area by using threats rather than encouragement.
