Nathaniel Greene was a major general in the Continental Army. He was the replacement for Horatio Gates. He understood that they needed to work with the Partisans and that guerrilla warfare was the key to winning the war. He led part of the army in the Battle of Cowpens when the patriot army split. When Colonel Isaac Hayne was captured by the British and hanged as a traitor of the crown, Greene responded immediately by issuing a proclamation. This was the cause of the Battle of Eutaw Springs.
