This series of headstones and records of the Revolutionary War Veterans buried in Decatur County was started in July 1975, by Smith Monument Works as their project for the bicentennial.
The series would have been impossible wwithout the records kept by the Lone Tree Chapter, D.A.R.
We at Smith Mounment Works would like, once again, to express appreciation to the Lone Tree Chapter D.A.R. for their dedication to the presevation of the history of Decatur County.
We would also like to thank the Bicentennial Commission for preserving this series in booklet form.

In North Carolina, General Cornwallis made his biggest effort to recruit Tories or Loyalists and several of the biggest battles fought in that state were between men who remained loyal to theking and men like SamuelLloyd who wanted the country to be fere and independent.
At Ramsour's Mill,it has been written no other soldier in the world could have fought as the North Carolina Militiamen did. Ramsour's Mill was inLincolnCounty, North Carolina and teh battle took place a few hundred yards east of the mill.
