Battle of Cowpens

On January 17, 1781, American troops commanded by Brigadier General Daniel Morgan defeated British forces led by Colonel Banastre Tarleton in the pivotal Battle of Cowpens in South Carolina. This was on the heels of another British defeat at the Battle of Kings Mountain the preceding October and eventually led to the Battle of Yorktown, which ended the war for all intents and purposes.
