  • Very interesting, comprehensive, informative,and fun! Excellent exhibits. Integrated Cowpens with the big picture of the American Revolution. One-mile easy walking trail let's you envision how it went down. Courteous and helpful Park staff.
  • Came with my family but didn't stay long because sadly, it was just too hot. There is lots of historical placards, statues, and info. A nice visitors center and BEAUTIFUL ground. The old trees made me feel like they would bend down and hug me. I'll return when it cools off!
  • Love this National Battlefield. Plenty to learn here. It has nice trails to walk and learn about the battle here. Can ride bikes on the loop road. Picnic in the nice picnic area
  • Very interesting if you are a history lover. People there are able to answer questions about the time before and after the battle. Often find reenactors on site. It is a nice walk around the battlefield with signs along the way explaining what happened.
  • Little known Revolutionary War battle but this was the turning point of the war in the south and lead directly to our ultimate victory at Yorktown. This is hallowed ground and should be enjoyed by all in the area and those passing through. The battle trail down the Green River Road is a window to 1781. The park rangers are very knowledgeable and helpful.
