    Chesnee is the nearest town to Cowpens National Battlefield; but I will put most of the page under Gaffney because that is the mailing address and that is what you need to put into your GPS to find the visitor's center. According to the National Park Service; if you input Chesnee in your GPS you end up in the middle of a lake.
