Daniel Morgan Dbq

99 Words1 Page
Daniel Morgan had a brilliant idea of setting his troops up into three lines. They would fight line by line which soon tired out the British. The front line was made out of around 150 riflemen. Since rifles are slow to load, but accurate, the riflemen were told to shoot the retreat. The second line was made out of 300 militiamen with muskets. They were told to fire three times at approaching British. The final and last line was the main force. By the time the British had reached the third line, they were tired and very worn out.
