Revolutionary War Hero

Morgan County, Georgia is named in honor of Revolutionary War General Daniel Morgan.  Morgan was well known as a military tactician and is most celebrated for his victory at the Battle of Cowpens (South Carolina) which is considered to be the turning point of the American Revolution in the South.

Morgan County was created from Baldwin County in 1807.  In 1809 the town of Madison was incorporated and named the county seat. Until 1818, when Walton County was created, Morgan County was a part of the western frontier of Georgia—all lands to the west of it being Creek Indian territory.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
