My 5th Grade Year

This year has been pretty awesome! It went by so fast and I don’t want to leave. I want to go to 6th grade also so that i have more freedom,but i going to miss recess. It was so fun I would play soccer or basketball. Then Mr.Mcbride would push people on the swing in a banana and they would go HIGH I mean HIGH. I wonder if i will be good in Band next year? My favorite time of this year was our field day! I was so happy when i found out that I was going to 6th grade and not going to be held back which I wasn’t suspecting. I am going to MISS elementary school.

Battle of Cowpens

The Battle of Cowpens happened January 17,1781 at the latter part of Southern Campaign of the American Revolution and of the Revolution itself. It became known as the turning point of the war in the South, part of a chain of events leading to patriot victory at Yorktown. The Cowpens victory was won over a track and brought together strong armies and leaders who made their mark on history. On the British side, 310 men were killed or wounded and 149 killed or wounded on the American side. The commanders of the Battle of Cowpens are Banastre Tarleton and Daniel Morgan. The Battle of Cowpens, together with the King’s Mountain, caused Lord Cornwallis to pull troops from South Carolina and move them farther north, leading to Yorktown and eventually the end of the Revolutionary war.
