As the southern campaign continues, Nathanael Greene entices British General Cornwallis deep into North Carolina. Cut of from a reliable supply line, it was Greene's hope to defeat a desperate and starving British column. Cornwallis indulges Greene and battles the Continentals and militia at Guilford Court House in the spring of 1781. While technically a draw, Cornwallis' force was too depleted to continue and regrouped with a new plan to attack Virginia. We also take the time to begin to explore the legacy of the revolution and its influence on the military institutions of the new republic. Questions?

The war in the south continues......Nathanael Greene took over the reigns of command in the south at the end of 1780. With the assistance of Daniel Morgan, he began pursuing British General Cornwallis. While Morgan secured a victory over the British at Cowpens, South Carolina, it marked the beginning of a long campaign that would ultimately lead to the siege at Yorktown and the end of the revolution. We also touch on the war in the north as George Washington dealt with the difficult challenges of funding the army and dealing with the treachery of Benedict Arnold. Questions?
