Cowpens National BattleﬁeldRichard Scruggs II bought 100 acres adjacent to Cowpens battlefield after the South Carolina General Assembly opened vacant lands for sale. Around 1811 he built a log cabin, probably with a split log roof and dirt floor. The family sheared wool, churned butter, and slaughtered animals to eat and sell. Descendants lived in the house until it burned in 1961, leaving only the chimney.
