Cowpens National Battlefield

This National Park Service site protects and preserves a Revolutionary War battlefield where American Daniel Morgan and his army won the Battle of Cowpens in a decisive battle against the British that was finished in less than an hour. The Battlefield Trail meanders through the 845-acre park, over the gently rolling battlefield, giving visitors an opportunity to experience the same terrain where the battle participants fought in January 1781.

The Cowpens National Battlefield TRACK Trail follows the trail used for the walking tour, a partially paved 1.25-miles loop through the battlefield.
