Cowpens – Part 2

Here are a couple of pictures from the museum in the visitors center at Cowpens National Battlefield.  When the kids and I were at Brattonsville one summer day, they were having a special display, complete with costumed interpreters, about the battle there, and we remembered the man there demonstrating, as he was sitting on the horse, how difficult it would be to load a rifle back in those days, and telling us that’s why the saber as well as the bayonet were such valuable weapons.  It was interesting seeing that reiterated at the museum at Cowpens.

Of course I was familiar with the Don’t Tread on Me flag, but didn’t know all this history and information about it.  This was just a sign that was hanging in the gift shop, but I thought it was so interesting I had to get a picture.
