DANIEL MORGAN. Engraving, unsigned. B/w, 8x11 overall, image 5¼x7½ (one surface). ©1861, Johnson, Fry & Co. Publishers, New York. Captioned beneath facsimile signature: "From the original painting by Chappel, in the possession of the publishers". Imprinted at lower margin: "Entered according to act of Congress A.D. 1861 by Johnson, Fry & Co in the clerks (sic) office of the district court for the southern district of New York". Daniel Morgan (1736-1802) is best known as the Brigadier General who defeated the British Army at Cowpens on January 17, 1781. Morgan, who had previously served in the British Army during the French and Indian War, had mustered into the American Army as the captain of a rifle company at the start of the American Revolution. He was captured in Quebec (along with Benedict Arnold) in December 1775, and, despite promising to refrain from fighting again as a condition of his release, distinguished himself at the Battles of Saratoga in 1777. Morgan resigned from the army after being passed over for a promotion to Brigadier General in 1779, but returned when he was granted the commission in October 1780. At the Battle of Cowpens, Morgan and his 300 Continentals defeated a superior British force led by Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton, resulting in Congress awarding him a gold medal. Morgan later served as a U.S. Congressman from Virginia (1797-1799), declining to run for a second term due to ill health. Lightly shaded at upper and lower blank edges. Fine condition.
