I personally think that William McGuire omitted his service at the Battle of Kings Mountain because many of this troops came under criticism for scapling the dead and wounded British and Tory Troops after the battle and he did not want his service at the battle to be known in his Pension Application. William McGuire was an Indian Spy as stated in his application both for the British Colonial Troops before the Revolutionary War and for the Federal Troops during the Revolutionary War. These facts were proven by the testimony in the Pension Application of Low Brown.

Respectfully,

Larry Wingo
