Backcountry Tories have their say

During the American Revolution, many Southern backcountry settlers remained loyal to the British. What were they thinking? You can get an idea March 15-16 at Cowpens National Battlefield when the Upper Broad Regiment, a Loyalist living history group, will give 18th-century weapons-firing demonstrations at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. both days, and will answer visitors’ questions. All activities are free and open to the public. Details:
