About the Book

Being a history buff,I think the most interesting time in U.S.History is the 19th Century and the war between the states.It is to me the most misunderstood time in our country's history.

As always there are two sides to every story.The southern people had a major part in forming these United States.Six of the first ten Presidents were from the south.Their fathers and grandfathers fought in the Revolutionary War.

I chose to write about John Hunt Morgan because he was a true patriot. He served the United States in the Mexican War.In my opinion he died a horrible,but honorable death for the love of his country.

Everyone, no matter who, is a part of history and John Hunt Morgan is no exception.
