The Battle of Cowpens

North Carolina

Remembered on January 15, 2005

Color Guard Commander Terry Manning leads the march to the Cowpens Monument.

Cowpens remains the best reason to own long underwear.  The 2005 celebration was no exception to the bone-chilling cold that seems to accompany this event each year. In spite of the temps, a bigger than ever encampment filled the battlefield and more visitors than any of us could remember came to the park for the celebration. 

Before going to the National Battlefield Park, a brief ceremony is always held at the Daniel Morgan statue in downtown Spartanburg, SC.
