Summary
During the War for Independence, black freedman Stuart Brodie returns from the war, only to find his brother lynched and his tavern in the backcountry of South Carolina burnt to the ground. Knowing that the guilty party was allied with the Colonial Patriots, he joins the British Army to exact his revenge. Meanwhile, Marty, raped by her husband and his friend and left to recover alone, dressed in men's clothing, is mistaken for a man. She uses this to her advantage to join the Colonial forces. Meanwhile, the Patriots are gathering backcountry fighters for an open confrontation with the British troops under Major Patrick Ferguson. This Ghost Legion is growing steadily, and though the British Loyalists do not believe the legion exists, when the two forces meet at the battle of King's Mountain, it will prove to be a turning point in the American Revolution
Summary
Marty McKidrict and Stuart Brodie are outcasts in the turbulent colonial backcountry of the 1780s. Trying to escape a brutal, sadistic husband, McKidrict disguises herself as a man and reluctantly joins the Patriot cause led by John Sevier and the Overmountain Men. Meanwhile, Brodie, a freedman, joins the Loyalists after Brodie's brother is lynched by a gang of Patriot renegades. In the heat of the American Revolution, fate will bring the two together in a bloody climax on a ridge along the border of theCarolinas, a place that will go down in history as King's Mountain
