Richard Skidmore is co-founder of the Indiana Morgan's Raid Heritage Trail. He was a consultant on the project, coming in early in the process to help the team learn about Morgan's Raid and also providing feedback at the end of the process.

Morgan's Raid is now available under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Feel free to download the source code. That link will have to have a new home on the site once we have a chance to restructure accordingly.

With this announcement, a new version of Morgan's Raid was uploaded. Two notable fixes:
  • The BSU logo is properly placed during the introduction on widescreen displays.
  • You can press 'F' in the main menu to toggle fullscree/windowed mode. This may be useful if the default display mode causes trouble for your operating environment.
