Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb?

So you’ve heard that one before?! Then join Chumley on location on the slope of a prominent Piedmont mountain where he’s discovered a cairn, a Scot, a memorial stone, and a mystery below the surface.

 

British Major Patrick Ferguson died at the top of Kings Mountain, SC, while a rider from Charleston was meandering through the Carolina outback with Ferguson’s promotion to Lieutenant Colonel in hand. And although Ferguson — killed on October 7, 1780 — was buried immediately (meaning before sunset on the day he died), he would not be alone in his long slumber. So, who exactly IS buried in Patrick Ferguson’s tomb?
