Revolutionary War Monument, Marion, Smyth Co., VA
In Marion, VA, there is a monument commemorating the service of the group of patriots who served in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse and the Battle of King's Mountain. Thomas Jefferson said that the Battle of King's Mountain "turned the tide of war in favor of the United States and led Cornwallis to remove to Yorktown and surrender." It was a savage battle and many patriots died or were wounded severely. These soldiers marched in Sept. 1775 to Williamsburg, where Patrick Henry needed help to force Gov. Dunmore to return the gunpowder he had taken from the colonists. My ancestor, Justus (Justice) Hubbell or Hubble is mentioned, as well as Matthew Bishop and Levi Bishop, the brothers of his wife, Waitstill Bishop. Picture courtesy of Connie Lautenbach!
