Its Cowpens time! Four years in a row. Every year is different thanks to the men and women of the National Park Service. This year Mark Schneider joined the crew as Banastre Tarleton. Mark is a historian and participant in Colonial Williamsburg. Mark does a fantastic job. Check out this short clip of Mark as Banastre Tarelton describing his capture of Charles Lee.
I have to give credit to sports talk radio guy Mike Bell from 790 The Zone who today mentioned that he almost stopped at the Cowpens National Battlefield to see “where Mel Gibson beat Tarleton”, but it was too far off I-85. Like most Americans, Bell exclaimed, he preferred his national battlefields just off the highway.
Funny stuff right there.
