Maryland Continental, 1781
In honor of the Battle of Cowpens, fought on this date in 1781, I present this new sculpt of a Maryland Line infantryman. Part of Brig. Gen. Daniel Morgan's hodge-podge command of militia, volunteers and regulars, who stood toe to toe with "Bloody Ban" Tarleton's disciplined Regular and Loyalist troops. The Continentals earned victory after a successful bayonet charge counterattack.
