The Enemy Within
[Script] ... at six o'clock in the evening… [the Rebels] executed … six privates; obliging every one of their officers to attend at the death ..." – Quote from a letter by Loyalist Anthony Allaire, written about the Battle of Kings Mountain. Scenes of retribution killings as described above were common in the South during the Revolution, as the war took on a very personal nature.
