Stories

Morgan was a skilled rifleman of the Revolutionary War. At the start of the war he was commissioned as a captain, and by the end he was promoted to brigadier general.

Morgan gained military experience by first participating in the French and Indian War. However, he was at times insubordinate (a well known trait of his) and punched one of his commanding officers. It was then he began to despise the British Army. During one ambush of the war, Morgan was shot through the back of the neck; the bullet then knocked out his teeth on the left side and exited through his cheek.
