On January 17, 1781, Brigadier General Daniel Morgan of the Continental army faced off against Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton’s British forces. Morgan’s decisive victory at Cowpens, a pasture near what is now Spartanburg, South Carolina, became a turning point in the Revolutionary War.
At Cowpens National Battlefield, you can envision the scene as Morgan and Tarleton faced off. Morgan’s “double envelopment” strategy of dividing his troops and attacking the British army’s flanks remains one of the most studied and effective military operations. The battle was over in less than an hour.
