The first section of the book is a miscellany of court records of Watauga, Washington County, North Carolina (later Tennessee), 1778-1782, and contains, in addition, militia rosters for the years 1777 and 1779 and pension declarations filed by King's Mountain participants and their heirs. Section Two is composed of biographical sketches of the soldiers, numbering close to 1,000 and arranged in alphabetical order. An Appendix contains lists of Tennessee pensioners." This book comes from the personal library of Morton H. Smith and is a clean copy with no underlining or notes.
