Overmountain Men Statue

The Overmountain Men statue at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton, Tennessee. The Overmountain men of what is now Tennessee, played a major part in Revolutionary War battles in South Carolina. The Siege of Charleston, the Battle of Musgrove Mill, and the Battle of Cowpens were all done with their help. The Battle of Kings Mountain was (what I believe) the most pivotal battle for the Overmountain Men. The Overmountain Men were angry about the British’s role in the Buford’s Massacre and would not accept the surrender by the British.

Location: Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton, Tennessee.
