Daniel Morgan, Hero of Cowpens

On the anniversary of the Battle of Cowpens, Brigadier General Daniel Morgan (portrayed by Ken Johnston) returns to the scene of this brilliant victory. Hear the inside story on southern history by one of the most gifted battlefield tacticians of the American Revolutionary War. As General Nathaniel Greene said about him: “Great Generals are Scarce — there are few Morgans out there.” No wonder Spartanburg placed a statue of him downtown and called that place Morgan Square. And as always at Chautauqua – the audience is part of the show. History comes alive at this Free Chautauqua performance. Come early for good seating and enjoy music from Pam & Fred Stoll. Headquarters Library in the Barrett Room, 151 S Church St, Spartanburg, SC 29306. Free parking is available in the lot behind the library. This performance is presented in cooperation with Cowpens National Battlefield, the South Carolina SAR, the Battle of Cowpens Chapter of the DAR, and the Friends of the Spartanburg County Public Libraries. #GreenvilleChautauqua #HistoryComesAlive #WinterChautauqua #Spartanburg #BattleofCowpens #DanielMorgan #AmericanRevolution #CowpensNationalBattlefield #SCSAR #DAR #SpartanburgCountyLibrary
