Map / Directions to the Major General Daniel Morgan Monument

This boulder monument is located in the field next to the Lebanon Museum at New Hampton. It commemorates Major General Daniel Morgan, who was born in this village in 1736. The monument notes his Revolutionary War history: he was the commander of the Morgan Rifle Corps; he was taken prisoner at the Battle of Quebec, December 31, 1775; he fought at the Battle of Saratoga; and was victorious at the Battle of Cowpens, South Carolina, Jan. 17, 1781.

After the war ended, Morgan continued to play a role in the early years of the country. He commanded the Virginia Militia ordered out by President Washington in 1794 to suppress the Whisky Rebellion in Pennsylvania. He was elected as a Federalist to the Fifth Congress, where he served from March 4, 1797-March 3, 1799. He died July 6, 1802, in Winchester, VA. [1]
