Bring your lunch and bring a chair. William Caldwell, Park Guide at the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail and with the National Park Service will be giving a program entitled “That Heathen Race: Backcountry Growth and Cultural Distinction.” The settlements along the Carolina backcountry and spilling over the Blue Ridge Mountains were a unique culture formed through conflict and competition. Where did these settlers come from, what brought them to the frontiers, and how would they impact the course of the American Revolution? An information table will be available from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm with the program beginning at 12:00 pm.
