Morgan's Cavalry Division Confederate States of America--History--Societies, etc United Confederate Veterans United States--History--Civil War, 1861-1865--Regimental histories Civil War, 1861-1865--Veterans John Hunt Morgan held a variety of official and unofficial titles throughout his military service to the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. Morgan's chief fame, however, emerged from his daring raids, many of which were staged in Kentucky. Christened the "Thunderbolt of the Confederacy" by an adoring South, he was also described as "King of the Horse Thieves" by Northern sympathizers. Morgan and his troops, who were known colloquially as "Morgan's Men," supported Confederate General Braxton Bragg's campaigns in Kentucky and Tennessee. Morgan's techniques were unorthodox and controversial, though usually effective. He often masqueraded as a union trooper behind enemy lines and frequently used civilians in his raids. Morgan legends abound and include his dramatic escape from a federal penitentiary in Ohio, his ride on horseback through his mother's house to kiss her goodbye, and his death at the hands of a lowly Union private. Morgan's death on September 4, 1864, was the cause of intense mourning throughout the South. Those of his men who survived the war formed the "Morgan's Men Association" in Lexington, Kentucky on April 17, 1868. The veterans held frequent reunions in Kentucky and Ohio; the organization survives to this day. The Confederate Veterans Reunion Photographic Collection, 1895-1924 consists of six photographs of Confederate veterans at reunion events, comprised mostly of posed shots of large groups Related Material Confederate Veteran Association of Kentucky records, 1890-1915, 71M28, Special Collections, University of Kentucky.
