At 11:45 am we again formed up at the Courthouse for the Musket Salute as the 1776 colors were lowered and our present day National Colors were raised on the Courthouse Flag Pole. After a great meal, we traveled 8 miles in Wilkes County to the actual Kettle Creek Battlefield for the 240 th Anniversary Celebration and to honor those brave Patriots who fought for our Freedoms.
