Time Period >> Revolutionary War 1776 - 1781|
For five long years, the war will rage in every colony. Americans are outnumbered, but strategic battles at Kings Mountain, Cowpens, Sherrill’s Ford and Guilford Courthouse as well as a new alliance with France mark a turning point of the war. Cornwallis’s defeat at Yorktown leads to an agreement for peace. The struggle for Independence is won and now a new nation must forge ahead, charting new territories in government and civil liberties. Mecklenburgers look forward to contributing to the new nation and living in peace.
