  • Driving from North Carolina I saw a sign for Cowpens Battlefield, 1781. My husband glanced at the sign (he was driving) and assumed it was a Civil War site. Getting settled I checked the local attract...  read more »

  • This is an important history lesson. We were there the day the 4th graders were there. Reinactors made it so understandable for them (park service has great 4th grader program check out website). The ...  read more »
  • We toured Cowpens Nat'l Battlefield last month, a day after walking Kings Mountain National Military Park. Cowpens NPS Ranger Roland B. gave a SPECTACULAR walking tour of the Cowpens battlefield-the pre & post history of the area, the actual battle history, characters, strategy, the battle's significance towards the winning of the Revolutionary War, and spoke to battlefield preservation & restoration efforts. We walked the ~1 mi. path with the Ranger as he brought the battle to vivid life with his thoughtful, well-prepared presentation. You could tell he really did his homework on it and was very able to answer all questions from the crowd. He faced us as we walked-that meant he walked the path backwards but he said it was out of respect for us as guests to the park and so we could hear him well. His was an exceptional effort-both smooth & enthusiastic! I was so thrilled with his professionalism and knowledge of the material that I asked him to sign the Gadsden Flag teeshirt ("Don't Tread On Me") that I purchased in the gift shop for a great keepsake. He described the battle from one end of the battlefield to the other, pausing for special points and questions, and at the end, released us to wind our way back at our own pace. Well done, Sir! The staff was helpful, the film well-made, the displays, markers, monuments & facilities excellent & well-kept.
  • One of the better revolutionary war battlefields that we have been to. The entire facility is nicely maintained with lots of information to tell you about the historic importance of this battle. Walking trails are wheelchair accessible and there is RV parking.
  • Great place to take my puppy and get in some relaxing walking and stress relief before going home after work. Awesome trails and nice friendly people.
  • This was a must see for us. Staff very friendly & informative, and lots of great history to be learned about here.
  • The grounds are all very clean, the guides are all very knowledgeable and polite. A nice place to learn history or to just take a scenic walk.
