In July 1789 George Cadogan Morgan, born in Bridgend, Wales, the nephew of the celebrated radical Dissenter Richard Price (1723–91), found himself caught up in the opening events of the French Revolution. In 1808 his family left Britain for America where his son, Richard Price Morgan, travelled extensively, making a descent of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers by raft and helping build some of the early American railroads. The adventures of both men are related here via letters George sent home to his family from France and through the autobiography written by his son in America.
