“Fight Like Hell,
Yell Like Devils”
(Another of a scries of articles on
the Revolution leading lip to the
bottle of Kings Mountain, written
by IV. K. White, county historian, |
for The Star.)
After the patriots had surround-;
ed Ferguson's army on the mountain
the first attark was made by Col- i
oriel Cn'mpbeifl. Bo torn going into
the tight the indomitable Virginia
leader told his daring men to fight
like h—1 and yell like devils, the
first shot of the battle was fired bv
Philip Oreever. a Virginia soldier, j
Immediately following this shot the;
Americans made a spirited at t ick
upon the enemy. But the Britlrn
were not panic-stricken, and s ten
they got into action. The Whigs de
pended upon their marksmanship,
while the English and Tories relied
chiefly upon their bayonets. With
in a short time the enemy began a
bayonet charge and drove the pa
triots down the side of the moun
But, tliis temporary success of the
British was of short duration. When
they had repulsed Campbell's men
they suddenly found themselves at
tacked from another side. The sec
ond blow for America was struck by
ithe heroic Colonel Shelby with his
i division. This gallant leader had
Hold his men to never shoot, without
‘ seeing an enemy and to never see
Ian enemy without bringing him
I down. Animated by such words ns
j these, Shelby's patriots led by their
j intrepid commander, struck t lie rear
[of tlie enemy Just as Campbell’s
brave boys were being forced back
But Colonel Ferguson was also equal
to tills emergency. So turning apon
these new assailants lie likewise
drove them down the hill
This British success, however, was
equally us brief as the other. Still
another American force was now
coming into action Colonel Clev
eland and his troops had to cross a
swamp to reach the enemy, and for
tills reason they were a little lal"
about getting into the fight, but
they got there just the same in
time to accomplish something. Just
as Shelby’s men were being repul
sed, Cleveland's “bull dogs” attack
ed the flank of the enemy. As the
valiant Cleveland was approaching
with his troops, he is said to have
pointed towards the British and to
have addressed his men as follows:
"Yonder is your enemy und the ene
my of all mankind."
Ferguson and his followers were In
a very uncomfortable predicament.
When they repulsed Campbell, they
were attacked from the rear by
Shelby, and they turned on the lat
ter and drove him down the hill
only to be struck on the flank by
Cleveland. If they drove Cleveland
back, they were again attacked by
Campbell who had rallied his men.
Onward the battle raged. The Amer
icans concealed themselves behind
rocks, trees, logs and bushes and
poured a deadly fire Into the ranks
of the enemy whose bayonet charge
accomplished little In the way of
destruction. Several times the
Whigs were repulsed, but each time
they returned to tho attack with re
One outstanding feature of the
battle was the sublime heroism of
the American officers. Colonel Camp
bell's horse gave out, but that offi- j
cer led his men on foot .getting so
far ahead of them at times in hi
zeal to win the hight that he was i
actually In danger of being killed j
by his own troops. Though a bullet;
passed through Colonel Shelby's;
hair, the gallant officer was unre
lenting In his efforts for victory ,
Colonel Cleveland's horse was twice j
wounded and the big 250 pound
fellow took It afoot with his troops j
shouting vociferously and urging!
them onward. Hut. the subordinate
officers were just as enthusiastic us I
were the leaders All seemed to be!
determined to win or de. The Amer
ican officers were everywhere in the
thick of the fight and were using
expressions like these, "Hoys remem
ber your liberty.” “We must get.
them out of this" va little nearer to
them, my brave men.” "Come on
boys, come on!”
The most heroic figure on the
British side was Colonel Ferguson.
Early in the fight the other British
officer realized that the situation
was hopeless and wanted to surren
der. Twice the white flag had been
raised, but each, time Ferguson had
cut it down, swearing that he would
never surrender to such a d -d set
