If horses could talk, what would the Morgan Horses used during the American Civil war say? It is likely that they would share stories about their difficult experiences as cavalry and artillery horses. Perhaps they would tell us of the love and devotion they felt for their masters on either side of the conflict. Or, theymight tell us how hard it was to be mounts for a cause they didn’t believe in. Either way, it seems fitting that the Morgan Horse, one of the earliest
American horse breeds, be part of this early chapter in American History.
