On October 7, 1780 the foundation that would forever change the world was established. Fewer than one thousand American Heroes, through skill, luck, and the leadership of cunning strategists, defeated Patrick Ferguson, a brilliant star of the British military might. John Brown was one of those Heroes: he fought and died in that battle.

His participation was documented by Dr. Bobby Gilmer Moss in his book, "The Patriots at King's Mountain". Dr. Moss wrote:

"John Brown, of what is now Tennessee, served under the command of Col. Sevier in the battle at Kings Mountain and was killed. (Not to be confused with John Brown, native of County Derry, Ireland.) Draper, p.303: White , p.153:1909 Monument."

May this memorial serve as an expression of the gratitude we owe John Brown for making the ultimate sacrifice to help build a new country: our America.
