  • First to confess - I'm an American Revolution nut. I actually read about the Revolution as relaxing entertainment. I even have a favorite battle - and it is the Battle of Cowpens. I live in the Midwes...  more »

  • Absolutely a beautiful Park to visit with a lot of history, and honestly, very little is known about this battlefield outside of the major names like Yorktown and Lexington, but on 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 won over a crack British regular army, and brought together strong armies and leaders who made their mark on history.
  • Great place to visit with my children who enjoy learning about history and earning Junior Ranger badges along the way! The visitor center movie was excellent and even held my 4-year-old's attention the entire time! It was a little rainy the day of our visit, but we still found plenty to do!
  • This is such a well kept place. The trails are a nice escape and the walking path around the car path is a great walk. The visitor's center is a wonderful experience as well. My family and I love it here.
  • Great place to stop for revolutionary war history. There is a drive around tour of the battlefield and there is a small theatre inside the building where you can watch a short film of how the battle happened.
  • Great place for the history and a lot of see. Especially recommended the anniversary festival that occurs in mid-January for a lot of presentations and demonstrations a lot of folks will appreciate.
