The 1781 Battle of Cowpens was a pivotal victory for the Patriots and a turning point in the Revolutionary War. Today, the soldiers’ stories, the history of the battle and a glimpse into 18th century backcountry life are preserved and interpreted at Cowpens National Battlefield. Visitors can explore the battlefield, hike a portion of the Overmountain Victory Trail and enjoy the park’s natural setting.
