"King George and Broadswords!" was the rallying cry as a group of Scottish Highlanders charged across a partially dismantled bridge in the early morning hours of February 27th, 1776. Little did they know that nearly one thousand Patriots waited for them on the other side. In what would be the last broadsword charge by Scottish Highlanders, The Battle of Moores Creek Bridge was a pivotal battle in the Revolutionary War. This first significant victory for the Patriots in the American Revolution paved the way for North Carolina to be the first colony to declare its independence from British rule.
