  1. Battle of King’s Mountain- The battle itself was not huge- in fact, there were virtually no British soldiers at the battle. Instead, it was a battle between Patriots which also included the legendary “Overmountain Men” from NC, Tennessee, and Kentucky, and loyalists. In other words, it was a battle of Americans against Americans. The regular army gave no official order to fight and the battle only lasted an hour and involved 2,000 soldiers. Nonetheless, the patriot troops defeated their loyalist enemies.

  1. The Battle of Cowpens- At the Battle of Cowpens, Colonel Andrew Pickens and General Daniel Morgan defeated a large British army. Together they worked out a plan to win. They established a game of Cat and Mouse. They ordered that only a few men should shoot at one time. They were to aim at the officers first. General Morgan put Pickens and the militiamen out front. The general told them to fire and then move behind his troops. It would look like they were running away. The British would chase them and run right into Morgan’s men. When the British troops marched forward, the militiamen followed the plan. The Patriots killed many British officers, and then they moved out of the way. Some of the British retreated, and the rest moved ahead as General Morgan had said they would. Many were killed and the Americans won the battle.

  1. Why was the Battle of Cowpens so important to the Patriot cause during the

American Revolution? ________________________________________
