Best Answer

The cause of the Battle of Kings Mountain was Robert Ferguson's loyalist group threatening residents of Kings Mountain. He was trying to acquire loyalists and said that people who did swear their allegiance to the king would be killed. The mountain people responded by killing Ferguson and several of his loyalists.

Where was the battle of kings mountain fought in?

The battle took place in South Carolina, about eight miles south of the city of Kings Mountain, North Carolina (which is named for the battle - not the other way around), and six or eight miles east of Blacksburg, South Carolina. Contrary to popular recollections (such as Wikipedia), the battle did not happen on the mountain that's called Kings Mountain, but on an insignificant hill a few miles away. The battle took place there because it's where the Over Mountain Men caught up to Major Patrick Ferguson. It's called the Battle of Kings Mountain because it happened near the mountain (not ON the mountain, as Wikipedia reports). You can get more information about the area at
