Daniel Morgan Academy

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security (DMGS) is named after General Daniel Morgan, who served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Unlike the wealthier aristocratic generals that are better known, he was in many ways the precursor of a new American soldier—a civilian called to service when he was needed. From a humble background as a wagoneer in the frontier, this brilliant tactician and strategist answered his country’s call. His victory at the Battle of Cowpens paved the way for ultimate independence for the United States.

General Daniel Morgan carved out his legacy with the knowledge and expertise that was passed on to him through mentors and those more experienced. The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security (DMGS) still values the intimate and personal passing of knowledge, even in today’s digital world.

General Morgan’s legacy ensured our liberties today, and your legacy can ensure our freedom tomorrow.
