But Morgan was at first followed only by his own company and a few Pennsylvanians. It was still very dark; he had e made to carry them. With a voice louder than the northeast gale, Morgan cheered on his riflemen; but though Heth and Porterfield and a few ants, the flower of the rebel army, was cooped up within the town.
