A military operation unlike any other on American soil, Morgan’s Raid was characterized by incredible speed, superhuman endurance and innovative tactics. One of the nation’s most colorful leaders, Confederate General John Hunt Morgan, took his cavalry through enemy-occupied territory in three states in one of the longest offensives of the Civil War. The effort produced the only battles fought north of the Ohio River and reached farther north than any other regular Confederate force. Morgan’s Raid historian David L. Mowery takes a new look at this unprecedented event in American history, one historians rank among the world’s greatest land-based raids since Elizabethan times.
David L. Mowery is the author of Morgan’s Great Raid: The Remarkable Expedition from Kentucky to Ohio and co-authored Morgan’s Raid Across Ohio: The Civil War Guidebook of the John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail.
