Battle of KM History: Only about 100 of Ferguson's men wore red coats, the other 900 or so were local Loyalist militia. The Patriots wore white paper in their hats, the Loyalists used a pine sprig in their hats. As the battle of Kings Mountain went on many Loyalists tore out their pine spring to switch sides.
