John H. Morgan (June 1, 1825 – September 4, 1864) was a Confederate general in the Civil War.

In April 1862, Morgan raised the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry Regiment (CSA) and fought at Shiloh. He then launched a costly raid in Kentucky, which encouraged Confederate General Braxton Bragg's invasion of that state in August 1862. He also attacked the supply lines of Union General William Rosecrans. In July 1863, he set out on a 1,000-mile raid into Indiana and Ohio, taking hundreds of prisoners. But after Union gunboats intercepted most of his men, Morgan surrendered at Salineville, Ohio, following the Battle of Salineville. His point of surrender is the northernmost point ever reached by uniformed Confederates.

Morgan escaped from his Union prison but his credibility remained low, and he was restricted to minor operations. He was killed at Greeneville, Tennessee, in September 1864. Morgan was the brother-in-law of Confederate general A. P. Hill. Morgan was buried in Lexington Cemetery.  [jet]  [PH:L]
