Between 1862 and 1863 there were 3 Morgan raids, the First Raid, Christmas Raid and the Great Raid, this series highlights some of those raids and gives you a look back at history. To fully enjoy this series, it is best to follow the route that Morgan went as much as possible by following the older roads along your path.
