LINCOLNTON––It was a prélude to victory.

It was the Battle of Ramsour’s Mill, fought in what later became Lincolnton, not long before the Battle of Kings Mountain, in 1780. Many historians credit these Patriot victories with the subsequent overall defeat of British forces in the South during the American Revolutionary War: military milestones that led ultimately to the final victory of Franco-American forces at Yorktown, Va. in 1781.

And it is to commemorate the 243rd anniversary of the Battle of Ramsour’s Mill that the Patriots’ Gala will be held, June 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Cultural Center at 403 E. Main St. in Lincolnton. Tickets are $35 each and may be had via the Website at

The evening will open with a patriotic program. Michael Helms will present entertainment and a feature film. Attendees will revisit the past with an historical re-enactment featuring George and Martha Washington.

The keynote speaker will be Daniel Barefoot of Lincolnton. A noted lawyer, author and historian, Barefoot is well known as an expert on the American Revolution and the War Between the States.

Following the program, attendees may check out the Lincoln Quilt Trails exhibit in the LCC’s galleries. You’ll enjoy historical exhibitions, a visit with the cast of Thunder Over Carolina and taking part in a silent auction.

The gala is co-hosted by the Jacob Forney Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Catawba Valley Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.

Problems With Our Lincoln Herald Email Link:  We apologize to those readers who had signed up for our free daily email with links to our latest articles.  You haven't been receiving that email recently.  The company that was handling sending out the daily emails with links to our latest articles failed us.  After many talks with them and other companies, we have decided to enter into a new agreement with another company that will provide the platform for the Lincoln Herald as well as other services including sending out those emails. 

For now, we have no way to send out the emails.  When the new provider's services are in place (over the next few weeks) we'll ask our readers to sign up for the emails again; they will still be a FREE service.  The new provider has also promised to improve our website, especially the photos we post (which always looked terrible when they are copied to Facebook).  

Our new look is coming soon! 

In the meantime, you can still read all our articles for free on our website and we will continue to post links to them on Facebook, and Twitter @LincolnHerald20.  

Thank you for reading the Lincoln Herald.
