Item Description

In the midst of the American Revolution, New Jersey native and surgeon Dr. Uzal Johnson traveled to South Carolina with the American Volunteers, a Loyalist unit under the command of the British colonel Patrick Ferguson. Johnson's wartime journal recounts the movements of Ferguson's Corps and its survivors through the rebellious Carolina colonies from March 1780 to March 1781 and gives a participant's 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 Johnson's journal, Wade S. Kolb III and Robert M. Weir add a wealth of historical context to the people, places, and events of Johnson's adventure and his Loyalist perspective on the Battle of Kings Mountain.
