About Irby Morgan

Irby Morgan was a mercantile leader in Nashville. During the War between the States he established a percussion cap manufactory. He also procured a half million yards of gray wool for the Confederacy, for less than 20% of the market cost. He enlisted as a private in the 51st Regiment Alabama Cavalry (Partisan Rangers), under his brother's command, John T. Morgan.

This regiment served under General N.B. Forrest, and later under General Joseph Wheeler. Private Morgan refused an appointment as a Divisional Quartermaster, and remained a private to the end of the war. "He carried to the grave a bullet from a gun of the enemy." (This portrait and information are from the CONFEDERATE VETERAN, Vol. 2, No. 7 (July 1894), p. 194, and additional information from the CONFEDERATE MILITARY HISTORY - ALABAMA, pp. 280-83, 427-33.)
