Ron, Tippy & Treky: The battle of Kettle Creek number 2

From the bloggers at Ron, Tippy & Treky

This sign is posted near where you enter the battleground. There is a map showing the location of the participants and their march.

My ancestor, Peter Strozier, fought under Col. John Dooley. Peter was an immigrant from Hanover, Germany. He had a small farm in what is now Wilkes County, Georgia. He was married to Margaret Dozier Strozier. They had at least seven children. None of these Patriots had enough money to own a slave.  In order to work their farms, they had lots of children.

Throughout the South, the Patriots and the Loyalists were neighbors. The Patriots wanted individual freedom. The Loyalists liked the caste system of inheriting their position in life from their parents ie: Kings, Princes, Queens, Lords, Earls, Dukes, etc. The Patriots wanted none of that. So, the war here was about neighbor fighting and killing neighbor.
