Cowpens National Battlefield, located in Chesnee, South Carolina, is a historical Revolutionary War site. Before the Battle of Cowpens of 1781, the area in which British and American troops engaged was used as a pasturing area for cattle.
The site honors the place where General Daniel Morgan and his men divided and turned the flanks of Banastre Tarleton's British Army using a classic tactic known as double envelpment. This is one of the only times in recorded history that it was attempted and successful. To this day the battle and tactics are still studied to this day by the military.
Today the Park is preserving the battlefield and restoring it to its original state with the help of staff, volunteers and conservation organizations such as Palmetto Conservation Foundation.
