MORGAN, George Washington (1820-1893) was an American soldier, lawyer, politician, and diplomat. He fought in the Texas Revolution and the Mexican-American War, and was a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Morgan commanded the 3rd Division of the XIII Corps under Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman during the Vicksburg Campaign. Sherman, however, was upset with Morgan's performance at the battle of Chickasaw Bluffs, when he failed to carry out orders for a planned attack. Morgan soon redeemed himself as he subsequently led the XIII Corps force that captured Fort Hindman in Arkansas. His health having deteriorated from the lengthy campaigning, and dissatisfied with the use of black troops, Morgan resigned his commission on June 8, 1863. Morgan later served as a three-term postbellum United States Congressman from Ohio. Manuscript Document Signed “G.W. Morgan” as attorney for the defendant, being a 7pp. folio, deposition, February 20, 1852. The case is a defamation case, where the defendant is accused of stating “a man told him that he had given her (Mrs. Craft) twelve turns in one night when she was drunk.” Very good condition.
