Cowpens 1781: Turning Point of the American Revolution
Call Number: 973.337 Gilbert 2016
Publication Date: 2016-09-20
"Tension had long been simmering between British loyalists in the southern coastal enclaves and the patriot back-country settlers. The disastrous British defeats at Saratoga in late 1777 made a southern strategy attractive to the Crown, and a string of victories over the rebels ensued. When Charleston fell on May 12, 1780, a horrific partisan war began, growing in scale and savagery. Determined to crush the last vestiges of rebellion, Cornwallis sent the hard-charging Banastre Tarleton in pursuit of Daniel Morgan's rebel army through the South Carolina interior. Using bird's eye views, vivid illustrations and detailed maps, this superbly illustrated book explores in detail Morgan's decisive stand at Hannah's Cowpens, one of the finest tactical performances of the war." -- from the book cover.
