COWPENS NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD
".our success was complete."
-- Daniel Morgan to Nathanael Greene, January 19, 1781
A pasturing area at the time of the battle, this Revolutionary War site commemorates the place where Daniel Morgan and his army turned the flanks of Banastre Tarleton's British army. This classic military tactic, known as a double envelopment, was one of only a few in history.
Cowpens National Battlefield is located near Boiling Springs, Chesnee and Duncan
