As everyone is aware, the National Parks are closed due to the partial government shutdown and Cowpens is coming up quickly.
Contingency plans have been finalized thanks to Leighann Snuggs and the Cherokee County Commissioners here in South Carolina. The Cowpens event will be held as planned. The only difference is the location of the wreath laying. All other plans remain unchanged.
The new location for the Wreath Laying on Saturday, January 19th at 10 AM is the new Amphitheater in Gaffney, SC. This is closer than driving to the Cowpens Battlefield National Park. There is parking next to the Amphitheater at the Cherokee County Government Building at: 110 Railroad St, Gaffney. SC. There is plenty of parking.
GPS coordinates are: Latitude N 35.077.10. Longitude: W 81.64509
If it rains we have other contingency plans already finalized for that as well. Please come and join us for the Cowpens event.
I look Forward to seeing you there.
