NPS Stop 7-Cowpens National Battlefield, SC: https://www.nps.gov/cowp/index.htm
This battlefield was named for the cow pens that were on the property before the start of the American Revolution. Cindy didn’t realize how many people and battles were involved in getting our freedom from England. This site was chosen by the commander because of its geographical features. We took the 1.5 mile flat walking tour first and read about what happened during this battle and how it was fought. The strategic details of these battles baffles me but the results are etched in history. The trail is covered by tall trees and provided nice shade. The path was covered with recycled rubber and Bailey enjoyed its bounce and stayed on the trail with us. Then we took the driving tour around the battlefield to get the big picture. There is a log cabin built by Robert Scruggs who farmed the land many years after the battle. We can image farming this piece of property but had difficulty in imagining a family with 11 children living in this small cabin.
