The National Park Service is coordinating with the Palmetto Conservation Foundation to further their plans to remove invasive plants from Cowpens National Battlefield.
Long term goals include reducing the populations of the non-native plant species posing the greatest threats to the park, as well as restoring plant communities in the park to their historical appearance the day the battle took place, January 17, 1781.

In the Revolutionary War, some women, known as camp followers, went with their husbands to the battlefields to tend to such chores as cooking, mending, laundry, and nursing the sick and wounded. Sometimes unmarried women performed these duties for a small wage and half rations.
