    1. "Daniel Morgan, Revolutionary Rifleman" by Don Higgenbotham is a reprint of the 1961 biography. It was recommended to me by a Park Ranger at the Saratoga Battlefield. (They have a wonderful historical book section at the store there.)I found it a good introductory biography and an easy read on a very important historical figure. Colonel, later General Morgan was one of the American Revolution's experts in "light warfare". He played very important roles in both the Saratoga Campaign and in the la [...]


    2. A very good biography of this Revolutionary War general. It is especially good concerning Morgan's participation at Saratoga and his brilliant design of the attack at Cowpens. This book is pretty old but I haven't found anything more recent.


    3. Revolutionary Rifleman is a brief overview of the life of Daniel Morgan. It is well-researched, with good use of primary sources. It is also a fairly easy read. Where I found this book lacking was in analysis. Rarely does it leave the well trodden path of narrative to explore the wilds of "why?" and "therefore." This is unfortunate, because I was often left wanting more. Overall, it is a useful book about an important subject.


    4. This is a thorough biography of Daniel Morgan, a Revolutionary War hero I have known a little about since I was a boy. I grew up around Cowpens, and so have long been familiar with Morgan and the double envelopment that won the day for the American Patriots. My knowledge about Morgan is now more complete, thanks to Don Higginbotham's research and writing. I particularly enjoyed reading about the old general's life after the war.


    5. A somewhat old-fashioned biography of one of the United States' more dashing Revolutionary War leaders, who later personified the notion that backwoods riflemen clinched the rebels' victory. Higginbotham devotes most of this book to Morgan's wartime service, penning an exciting narrative of the Quebec expedition of 1775 and the clearest account I've yet read of the Battle of Cowpens, the “tactical masterpiece” of the Revolutionary War. He also indicates the most important service Morgan prov [...]


    6. A well-documented "just the facts" biography of one of my heroes of the Revolutionary War. Although some of the thinking is dated (especially with language---Native Americans are nearly all "savages") and you don't get any sense of being present in the action, the book is a good portrait of a larger than life leader who, with his unEuropean battle strategies and tactics, helped win the Revolution.
