The Southern Backcountry was center of the fight for independence during the American Revolutionary War. The British mistook the repositioning of the Americans as a retreat and ran into an unexpected and concentrated rifle fire along with a cavalry charge. The Battle of Cowpens (January 17, 1781), along with the earlier Battle of Kings Mountain, were two American victories that defeated General Cornwallis's forces in South Carolina, causing him to abandon the state, and with it, he also abandoned the British “Southern Strategy”.  The Battle of Cowpens lasted less than an hour but had a huge impact on the War. The Americans would win the Revolutionary War ten months later when the British Army surrendered at Yorktown.
