Battle of Cowpens- American Revolution- Lecture
Battle of Cowpens Lecture
Wed. Jan 16th, 6pm
The Battle of Cowpens January 17, 1781, took place in the latter part of the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution and of the Revolution itself. It became known as the turning point of the war in the South, part of a chain of events leading to Patriot victory at Yorktown. The Cowpens victory was one over a crack British regular army and brought together strong armies and leaders who made their mark on history.
Dr. Christine Swager is a retired educator, having taught in the College of Education at The University of South Carolina. She has a passion for the great militia leaders of the south. She has written five books on the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution including Black Crows and White Cockades, If Ever Your Country Needs You, Come to the Cow Pens!, The Valiant Died: The Battle of Eutaw Springs, and Heroes of Kettle Creek: 1779-1783.
