Four members of the Overmountain Victory Trail Association do a mock gun volley at the dedication of the interpretive sign at Patriot Park, adjoining Sullivan East Middle School. It was part of the 2022 Overmountain Heritage Day program at the school. The patriots passed along this section of trail Sept. 25, 1780, on the way to the Oct. 7 Battle of Kings Mountain in South Carolina, where they defeated loyalists to the British Empire. The Revolutionary War for most intents and purposes ended a year later, in 1781.
