Historical. American General Greene had done something incredible. He had split his army and sent Morgan with a detachment to the west while he and the rest of the American army had marched to the east. British General Cornwallis thought he had Morgan trapped by sending Tarleton with a detachment to catch and destroy Morgan. But Morgan turned and confronted Tarleton at the Cowpens, and gave the American rebellion a much needed victory in the South. Note: this scenario is particularly suited for the Rifle Fire Effects Optional Rule.
