John Hunt Morgan, and to all descendants, both direct and collateral, of
those who served honorably in the Confederate States
Army in the command of Gen. Morgan. Associate
Membership is extended to all other persons who are interested in maintaining
Gen. Morgan's honored place in our nation's history. A special invitation
is made to the descendants of the Union soldiers who
fought against Morgan's Men. Just as the Union opponents were proud
of their adversary role, so will be their descendants. Membership is available
to all applicants, regardless of age. Only the associate and regular members
aged 16 years or older have the right to vote on Association matters.
The Morgan's Men Association, Inc. hosts an annual meeting or "reunion"
of the membership. This reunion is held in late August or early Setember. These reunions are held in different historical locations associated with Morgan's Command.
As a member of Morgan's Men, you will receive a beautiful 11" X 14" membership
certificate, hand lettered with your name and the name, rank, and regimental
affiliation of your ancestor. Associate members also receive a certificate proclaiming membership in the association.

I have just published a book about Captain Kirkpatrick's Civil War career. Information about the book, including how to purchase it, can be obtained at http://tennesseepreachertennesseesoldier.com/. There is some outstanding authentic Confederate cavalry music there that will make the viewer wish he had been born a hundred years earlier. Tom Stevens
