"Finally, Im here."For Judd, history came to life at the Kings Mountain GatewayFestival. His ancestral relatives fought at the Battle of KingsMountain.As part of the festival, Revolutionary War re-enactors gave Juddand a sizeable audience a glimpse into combat circa 1780.Nearly every gunshot sent onlookers reeling back. The fightculminated with members of the backcountry militia runningredcoats into nearby woods.But a battle re-enactment wasnt all the festival had to offer.For children and pet lovers? A "cute critters" competition. Andgearheads had toys to look over at a car show."The bane of every special events planner is the weather," saidEllis Noell, the citys special events director.
