The American Revolution Roundtable of the Backcountry will hold its first program of 2013 on FRIDAY evening, January 18 At 6:30 pm in the Montgomery Room of the Burwell Building at Wofford College. This twenty-first meeting of our roundtable will feature Dr. Jim Piecuch, Assistant Professor at Kennesaw State University as he discusses the topic of his latest book, Cavalry of the American Revolution. Dr. Piecuch is author of Three Peoples, One King: Loyalists, Indians, Slaves and the American Revolution in the Deep South, which is the first study of the Southern Campaigns undertaken from the viewpoint of the British and their supporters. He has also authored five articles and book chapters on colonial and revolutionary history and contributed articles to several historical encyclopedias. He has written a compendium of documents: The Battle of Camden: A Documentary History, and a monograph, The Battle of the Waxhaws: Tarleton and the Myth of Buford's Massacre and a field guide to the Battle of Eutaw Springs.
This change in scheduling and format is being done for this meeting so as to coordinate this roundtable program with other events being held at the Cowpens National Battlefield throughout the entire weekend in celebration of the anniversary of the actual battle at Cowpens on January 17, 1781.
Dessert, coffee and libations will be available from 6:30-7:00 with the program taking place from 7:10 – 7:55. The charge is $5 per person.
