General Andrew Pickens served as a US representative and, prior to that, was one of South Carolina's most formidable Revolutionary War heroes. His son, Andrew Pickens, Jr., served as our state governor. Although General Pickens began his military career by fighting the Cherokee in the Anglo-Cherokee War, he was well-respected by tribal leaders. They called him "Skyagunsta" or Wizard Owl. Pickens came from Scots-Irish stock and was also known as the "Fighting Elder" because of his strong Presbyterian faith.

American hopes were at a low point at the start of 1781. That changed, however, on January 17, when General Daniel Morgan won one of the most brilliant victories of the Revolutionary War at Cowpens, South Carolina. With the help of Maryland, Virginia, and Georgia regiments, Morgan stopped the attacking British dead in their tracks. Trapped by the cavalry and the militia, the surrounded British soon relented. This flag of the Third Maryland Regiment, which was present that day at Cowpens, is now enshrined in the State Capitol in Annapolis, Maryland in honor of that battle.Source: National Flag Foundation Newsletter. Rick Wyatt, 9 July 2001 ________________________________________According to Richardson's book on American Revolutionary war flags, the 3rd Maryland was consolidated with other units to form a composite brigade at Cowpens due to the defeat suffered at Camden earlier. This unit, along with a few others, carried the Stars and Stripes without authorization, which was not granted to U.S. combat units until 1834, 1841 and 1862 respectively for artillery, infantry and cavalry units.In the film "The Patriot" Mel Gibson, at the battle that is supposed to be Cowpens, is seen carrying a flag that is the typical 13 stars in a circle (alleged Betsy Ross flag). All they needed to do to get it right was to make it a copy of the 3rd Maryland colors.
