Abingdon Muster Grounds

The Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail travels through VA, TN, NC & SC, retracing the route of patriot militia as they tracked down the British. Eventually the two forces clashed, ending in patriot victory at the battle of Kings Mountain. The Muster Grounds, and the accompanying museum, remember and celebrate the staging grounds for this decisive campaign with annual historical reenactments. This event draws large crowds and is testament that history is alive in Abingdon.
