Why It Matters–The Battle of Kings Mountain–Beth Trissel

October 7th, my niece Cailin’s birthday, is the anniversary of the Battle of Kings Mountain, an epic conflict that took place in what is now North Carolina, then South Carolina, and one that many Virginians took part in. Also a sadly much overlooked battle. The ramifications were huge. So why haven’t more people heard of it?…

Kilchurn Castle, Scotland. It was built by the Campbells of Glenorchy in the 1400s, guarding one end of Loch Awe.

Kilchurn Castle

I love this place. This castle was built by the Campbells of Glenorchy in the 1400s, guarding one end of Loch Awe. Jen's Great Aunt Mary lived nearby in Lochawe village. Among the most feared, ruthless residents (fitfully) was the terrifyingly named Grey Colin. He personally beheaded the young chief of the MacGregors, his family's long-time allies. His ferocity was only matched by his nemesis, Beige Nigel. I made that up - sorry. The tower house on the left is the oldest part of the…
