Four Howard's Maryland Continentals (2 standing firing, 2 kneeling firing), American Continental Line Infantry, The Battle of Cowpens, January 17, 1781, The American War of Independence, 1775–1783

THE BATTLE OF COWPENS, JANUARY 17th, 1781.
THE 7th REGIMENT OF FOOT (ROYAL FUSILIERS.)

The Battle of Cowpens was an engagement during the American Revolutionary War fought on January 17th 1781, near the town of Cowpens, South Carolina, between American forces under Brigadier General Daniel Morgan, and British forces under Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton, as part of the campaign in the Carolinas.

The battle was a turning point in the American reconquest of South Carolina from the British.

Tarleton’s force of 1,000 British troops were set against 2,000 troops under Morgan.  Morgan’s forces suffered casualties of only 25 killed and 124 wounded.  Tarleton’s force was almost completely eliminated with almost 30% casualties and 55% of his force captured or missing, with Tarleton himself and only about 200 British troops escaping.

Morgan’s forces conducted a double envelopment of the British forces, the only double envelopment of the war.

CONTINENTAL LINE INFANTRY
HOWARD’S MARYLAND CONTINENTALS

The main core of Morgan’s flying Army was a battalion of veteran Continentals:  three companies of the Maryland Line and one company from Delaware.  These were highly trained and disciplined, and formed the main line commanded by John Eager Howard.  They were the best troops to engage in prolonged close combat with British regulars.

The three Maryland companies at the Battle of Cowpens were survivors from several ravaged regiments.  The First Company (Captain Richard Anderson) included survivors of the 1st and 7th Maryland.  The Second Company (Captain Henry Dobson) was formed from the 2nd, 4th and 6th Maryland.  The Third Company (Lieutenant Nicholas Mangers) included men from the old 3rd and 5th Maryland.
