The Battle of Cowpens, January 17, 1781, took place in the latter part of the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution and of the Revolution itself. It became known as the turning point of the war in the South, part of a chain of events leading to Patriot victory at Yorktown The Cowpens victory was won over a crack British regular army and brought together strong armies and leaders who made their mark on history.

We will stop and eat in Spartanburg and then on to Cowpens Battlefield which is part of the National Parks Service. There are restrooms at the visitor center as well as an informative movie. We can also tour the battlefield to get a perspective on how the battle unfolded. Join us for a beautiful country ride, country cooking at Wades and the good company of friends.

The weather weenie says we should have sunny weather with a high in the 50's and no rain which is great riding weather! Please join us for the ride this would be a pleasant easy ride for those of you new to the group and a 1st time there as a group for everyone.

Celebrate Veterans day at the site of the original Veterans!
