In celebration of the 239th anniversary of the Overmountain Men and their journey to the Battle of Kings Mountain, Rocky Mount State Historic will host “An Overmountain Victory” at 7:00 p.m. on September 24th.
The Overmountain Victory Trail Association (OVTA) will present this special lamplight narration describing the daring attempt of local settlers and farmers to secure their independence by halting the westward expansion of the British & Loyalist Army. Join them at their encampment at Rocky Mount on September 24, 1780 in the first leg of their triumphant over-the-mountain march to victory at the Battle of King’s Mountain.
This free program is provided by OVTA through a grant from the National Park Service.
Rocky Mount State Historic Site is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from the first Tuesday in March through the second Saturday in December.
