Product description


"This long-overdue reappraisal of the dramatic life of one of America's finest military leaders places Daniel Morgan squarely in the context of his times. Rugged and defiant, Morgan was also a clever and innovative officer whose influence on the American military ethos reaches right down to today. Best of all, Zambone's book is quite an enjoyable read!"--Edward G. Lengel, author of General George Washington: A Military Life

"Daniel Morgan has been overdue for a new biography, and Zambone has given us a tour-de-force. His volume is exhaustively researched, elegantly written, and deeply revealing--by far the best biography we have of this fascinating yet enigmatic member of the founding generation. A wonderful book."
--Mark Edward Lender, coauthor of Fatal Sunday: George Washington, the Monmouth Campaign, and the Politics of Battle

"Albert Louis Zambone's evocative and engaging book immerses readers in the fascinating life and tumultuous times of Daniel Morgan. The biography follows Morgan as he fought his way up: he was a nobody from nowhere who became a celebrated military tactician and war hero. Zambone restores Morgan to a place of prominence in the story of American independence. Through his exploration of Morgan's life, Zambone also illuminates the interplay between the Revolutionary War and the larger American Revolution, which transformed Morgan's life and the society he inhabited. Daniel Morgan is important and crisply written and not to be missed by readers interested in the origins of the American Republic."--Lorri Glover, Saint Louis University, author of The Fate of the Revolution: Virginians Debate the Constitution (Johns Hopkins, 2016) and Founders as Fathers: The Private Lives and Politics of the American Revolutionaries (Yale, 2014)
