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.

My 2017 goal is to be more organized. To me I love it when I’m organized. On my computer I can make reminders for anything  I need to do by a certain time. Being organized could help me when I have homework or a project due in a couple of days I won’t forget because,I get on my computer everyday,and if not I will make myself get on it. It could also help me by chores because most of the time I am going to on my computer so when a chores reminder pops up I will know to go do my chores. A way organization could help all people around the world is when you’re looking for something that you need fast and you know where it is so you do have to look for it and take who knows how long to find it,and then maybe your late for work because you couldn’t find your keys fast enough or you have to wait longer for something it could be anything. But that’s why my 2017 goal is to be organized.
