The Overmountain Victory Trail Crossing --- On September 25, 1780, the Overmountain Men gathered at Sycamore Shoals on their march to victory at King’s Mountain. Members of the Overmountain Victory Trail Association have recreated this historic journey every year since 1975 following the same route and timetable as their legendary forebears. Marchers once again crossed the Watauga River yesterday, Sept 25th, at the Sycamore Shoals just as the frontiersmen would have done 233 years ago.
