Daniel Morgan – WCS


Daniel Morgan began his military adventures as a waggoneer on the Braddock Expedition against Fort Duquesne. He and his cousin Daniel Boone both survived along with a future friend, George Washington. On the rough and tumble of the Virginia frontier, the fiery six foot, two hundred pound Morgan became known as a brawler and two fisted drinker, always giving more than he got. An Indian bullet took out all his teeth on one side and exited his neck but he kept his saddle and escaped the ambush.

When the War for Independence came, Morgan helped raise and command a company of riflemen, inured to hardship and deadly shots. He led them six hundred miles to Boston without one dropping out. His men spearheaded the march against Quebec, in which battle he was captured and later exchanged. He raised a body of five hundred sharpshooters, “the Corps of Rangers,” and joined Washington in New Jersey, later sent to fight the British invasion of New York. His men mowed down the Redcoats and the Hessians on several occasions in the Saratoga Campaign, usually recognized as the turning point battle of the war. His men would scatter after fighting behind trees and be reassembled with a turkey call to go at the enemy from another quarter.

 After promotion to Brigadier General, Morgan proceeded to South Carolina where he turned his men to fight at the Cowpens to stop “Bloody Ban” Tarleton. Directed by Morgan’s unique brand of personal heroism and leadership, his Virginia riflemen and militia annihilated the British force, and the doughty Welshman marched his troops through a trap to join Nathaniel Greene’s army in North Carolina.
