Cowpens: Prelude to Yorktown


Author(s):
Abstract:
In 1780, the rebellion of the colonies hung on the ropes. Lord Cornwallis stood in South Carolina poised to strike at Virginia, where North Carolina only stood in his way as the road to Virginia. But little did the British know that forces joined at Cowpens in North Carolina were more than just a road block.
