Presentations at Cowpens National Battlefield

On May 10th at 2:00, we will have historian Robert Brown, author of Kings Mountain and Cowpens: Our Victory Was Complete, to speak about the American Revolution in the back country as a civil war. His books are also for sale in the park's bookstore and he will be available after his talk to sign them. 

On May 24th at 12:30, we will have retired Lieutenant Colonel John Moncure, who researched and wrote the original Cowpens Staff Ride the military uses today. He will speak about what a military Staff Ride is, how the military uses battlefields to train officers, and he will conduct a Staff Ride of the battlefield for the visitors to experience. Anyone who would like to do a little reading and preparation beforehand can sign up as the part of Daniel Morgan, John Howard, Andrew Pickens, William Washington, or Banastre Tarleton and participate in that manner if they wish. If you would like to have an active participating role, please contact me via email or phone at the park. The Staff Ride that was written by John Moncure is available in PDF form on our website:

On June 28th at 10:30 AM Robert Dunkerly, author of Women of the Revolution: Bravery and Sacrifice on the Southern Battlefields will be speaking about the roles of women during the war. His book is for sale in our park's bookstore and he will be available to sign them.

I hope some of you find something interesting in this list. We would love to have you come out and enjoy the programs.
