The success of the Americans at King's Mountain,1 over the forces of Ferguson and Depuyster, has been the subject of numerous ballads. The one subjoined was written a short time after the action, and published on a small sheet, the following year.
BATTLE OF KING'S MOUNTAIN.2
' 'Twas on a pleasant mountain The Tory heathens lay; With a doughty major at their head, One Ferguson they say.
Cornwallis had detach'd him,
A thieving for to go, And catch the Carolina men,
Or bring the rebels low.
