Morgan's Corp are skirmishers and snipers without peer, picking off leaders to sow confusion in enemy ranks.
Organized as light infantry but armed with rifles rather than smoothbore muskets, riflemen have every right to see themselves as elite. Chosen for initiative and intelligence, they do not need close supervision by their officers. These crack shots are trained for ranged combat and will be found wanting if they engage in melee. At their best in cover, their loose formation makes them a tough target for line infantry, and their uniforms allow them to blend into the landscape as they stalk their human prey.
The men of Morgan's provisional Rifle Corps were seen by many, including Washington, as elite soldiers; they were well acquainted with the use of a rifle and were expert marksmen. This exceptional reputation meant that they were chosen to accompany Benedict Arnold to attack Quebec. The attack began during a blinding snowstorm and ended in failure. Morgan did manage to get a few of his men over the wall and into the city, something no other American achieved.
Morgan's Provisional Rifle Corp are a cut above standard American Long Rifle Men, boasting even higher accuracy and better close-ranged capabilities. Otherwise, they are much the same as Long Rifle Men: excellent snipers capable of dealing damage from considerable range, but handling very poorly in melee combat.
