Johnsons wartime journal recounts the movements of Fergusons Corps and its survivors through the rebellious Carolina colonies from March 1780 to March 1781 and gives a participants account of the American victory at Kings Mountain, an event that gave hope to the Whigs and greatly dispirited the Loyalists. In this definitive edition of Johnsons journal, Wade S. Kolb III and Robert M. Weir add a wealth of historical context to the people, places, and events of Johnsons adventure and his Loyalist perspective on the Battle of Kings Mountain.
