Morgan's Riflemen Flag
« on: December 06, 2020, 12:50:23 PM »
I would love to have that flag. Daniel Morgan is my wife's 1st Cousin 7x Removed through Daniel Boone. 

I found this 3'x5' at $69 here:  https://humphrysflag.com/morgans-rifles/

Here is a little desk-sized from Ebay  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Morgans-Rifle-Corps-XI-Virginia-Regt-American-Revolution-Mini-Desk-Flag-4-x-5-/143204695978

Does anyone have other sources?

Congrats!  ^:)^
I need one of those flags. Where did you order it?

Let's see if I can't get you the information you're asking for:

On the 6th of December 2020, five of our seven KD participants connected with the shingle.  Image is attached:

Terry A.
Erik G.
Casey N.
Robyin P.
Seth W.

Although we recorded their home states on the certificate, I did not think to record the information.  Let me know if this is considered highly-desired and I can email the participants if necessary.
KD Requal 2/22/19 at 600 yards AR15 Service Rifle 50/50 - irons
25m Requal 2/1/2020 with AR15 scored 247
25m Requal 4/17/2021 with .22 bolt gun - 237
45 KD and UKD events run/worked as of 9/15/21

You can't miss fast enough to qualify.

Without a heritage every generation starts over.

Beware an old man who still shoots iron sights.

I wouldn’t mind one of the small ones, but it was $10.60 with $14.55 as the cheapest shipping option. If enough people in the TN Valley area wanted these, we might want to combine orders?

Maybe we can get a Store pricing. I'll do some digging.

Thaddeus:  Could you please also investigate a flag patch. It might be that the AOC would decide to reserve it for those who have qualified for the Morgans' Riflemen Roster by shooting the shingle at 250 (maybe with a bar for iron sights!)

Maybe we can get a Store pricing. I'll do some digging.

Carroll, there is already a process in place for this, and a patch designed for it.  :cool2:

I would love to have that flag. Daniel Morgan is my wife's 1st Cousin 7x Removed through Daniel Boone. 


My Morgan kin are no relation to Daniel Morgan that we know of; but my relative, Randall Morgan, served under same in the 11th Virginia Regiment. He died in 1777.

Corporal Randal Morgan fought in Captain Smith's Company, Daniel Morgan's command.  See the handwritten roster here and attached.  His unit is at the top and he is listed under the Corporal column
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9WB-C2CP?i=705&cc=2068326&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQGXT-4QKD
The muster is dated 1 May 1777
I would enjoy seeing his parents/ancestry in order to see if I can link Copral Morgan to our family's Morgans of Virginia.

Just an FYI, there is a two page write up on Morgan's Riflemen in the latest issue of Shooting Times (August 2021).
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer
