Abingdon Muster Grounds and the Overmountain Victory Trail
Today Noelle, Sierra and I drove up Interstate 81 into Virginia to check out the town of Abingdon and the Muster Grounds there.
The Muster Grounds is where the Overmountain Men staged for their march to King's Mountain. We checked out the exhibits in the visitor center and Sierra even got to try on a tri-corner hat.
Then we headed outside to hike a short section of the Overmountain Victory Trail which traces the route of the American rebels. We saw lots of geese
and crossed a bridge over a creek which the trail then closely followed.
Eventually the trail cam to a road where it ended. We retraced our steps back to the visitor center and then headed into town for lunch at Dairy Queen.
