HEROES AND HEROINES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (Series)

THE OLD WAGONER

Written by Idella Bodie

Daniel Morgan's story begins before the Revolutionary War when England still governed the colonies.  Also at this time in history, France and England fought over unsettled land in America.

As a young man, Daniel drove a supply wagon with food, ammunition, and other provisions for the British army.  Although he was not old, he earned the nickname of "The Old Wagoner."  He even called himself that in talking to others. 

Morgan's fame as a soldier came when he fought the British in the French and Indian War.  Native Americans, who had long occupied these lands, joined the British or the French.  Each side made promises of treating the Indians right when the battle was over. 

At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, Moran joined the Patriots and led a company of sharpshooting riflemen in a north battle. 

When the thickest fighting moved to the southern colonies, the upcountry of South Carolina was a frontier land with grassy plains and natural springs.  It was here that Daniel Morgan led a company of militia through numerous battles including Saratoga. But his finest moment was leading the southern Patriot force to a brilliant victory over Banastre Tarleton at the Battle of  Cowpens--using a risky battle plan.

This book describes the childhood, military service, and accomplishments of Daniel Morgan, especially as they relate to the southern campaigns of the American Revolution.

88 pages. 2002.  Reading level: 3rd grade.
