Well worth visiting. Because of this battle, General Cornwallis ended up at Yorktown to refurbish and get more troops, only to be defeated by troops under Washington and Rochambeau. A relatively small battle that helped give us a country. Local militia fighting with a small...More

We was in the area and noticed they were having a discussion about the women’s place during the war. When we got there they were shooting muskets, showed how they cooked and made and washed clothing. Everything was very interesting.

This small, interactive National Park is a must see for any history buff. Cowpens was the site of one of the pivotal battles of the Revolutionary Wars southern campaign. Due to the lack of development, It boasts a very well preserved battlefield. You can spend...More

An American Revolutionary battlefield a little off the beaten path but worth a visit! Nice visitor center with knowledgeable staff. The Battlefield trail is perfect for stretching your legs on a road trip.

The park is located in a beautiful rural area. It's a bit off the main road, but definitely worth your time, especially if you like history. The National Park Service rangers and the volunteers that run the place were all very friendly, answered all my...More
