When reenacting or acting as a historical interpreter, its good to have a few historical dates and stories to share. This series will publish a few.

January 17, 1781 – BATTLE OF COWPENS:  Brigadier General Daniel Morgan conducted a double envelopment of Lieutenant Colonel Sir Banastre Tarleton British forces.  Morgan’s forces suffered casualties of only 20 killed and 69 wounded. Tarleton’s force was almost completely eliminated with almost 30% casualties and 55% of his force captured or missing, with Tarleton himself and only about 200 British troops escaping.
