Anniversary of the Battle of Cowpens celebrated by Mabry studentsPublished 8:50am Wednesday, January 30, 2013
The students of Mr. Brown’s South Carolina history classes at Mabry Middle School and their parents recently spent a Saturday at Cowpens National Battlefield to mark the 232nd anniversary of the famed battle. Mr. Brown had asked for, and received permission from the National Park service to lead a lecture tour for his students and their parents. A total of 32 students and parents attended the ceremonies.
The group began the day with a guided tour of the battlefield conducted by Mr. Brown. Mr. Brown, a South Carolina history teacher at Mabry Middle School, also gave a rousing lecture on the battle that turned the tide of the American Revolution. After the tour and lecture the group went to watch and take part in the varied activities the National Park had to offer. Mr. Brown is looking forward to many more opportunities like this to bring together parents, students, and teachers outside of the school setting for expanded learning.
