    My great.great,great,great,great-grandfather, Samuel Campbell Clegg, was one of 5 loyalists hung in 1779 for taking part in the Battle of Kettle Creek. I sure am glad he fathered his children before going off to fight. Sorry he was hanged but glad the patriots won the battle. I have enjoyed learning more about the battle and look forward to exploring more of Blogging the Revolution.

    I’m also from that Clegg line! Does give one pause to think about the things we take for granted as Americans today…so glad this page is here.

    My gggggg ancestor fought at this battle. we just moved to the area, and I took my boys there, today, to see the site. it was amazing.
    powerful. flags from July 4th celebrations I’m sure were still there marking the graves of those still buried at the site.
    Thankful for the remembrance of these individuals and their sacrifice for the United States.
