I was reading up on american riflemen when I found some cool stuff on Morgan's Snipers which helped me find out who Daniel Morgan was. He was an American pioneer, soldier, and United States Representative from Virginia. One of the most gifted battlefield tacticians of the American Revolutionary War.

Colonel Morgan's riflemen were legendary sharpshooters. Some have noted that to become a member, a man had to be able to consistently hit a seven inch square at a distance of 250 yards. Perhaps apocryphal, it is also said that Morgan instituted a quick test to determine eligibility. He would post broadside with a picture of King George or--if copies were not available--any British officer one hundred yards away. Only those men who could hit the head with their first shot were allowed to join. Needless to say, this test did not sit well with the British forces who considered Morgan to be a war criminal.
