“Saving Colonel Williams,” with Randell Jones, Monday, April 1 at 7 pm, Revolutionary War Round Table of the Backcountry, USC-Upstate, Spartanburg, SC.

Randell Jones presents the newly discovered history of the route in the Catawba River Valley used by the Lincoln County (NC) Militia and the SC Militia to get to the Battle of Kings Mountain.

James Williams, thus making him perhaps the real hero of the battle. Optional dinner at 6 by reservation; talk at 7 pm, $5. Campus Life Ballroom.
