While most breeds develop by breeding horses of similar characteristics to each other, Justin Morgan's ability to pass his characteristics to his offspring for generations to come allowed this single stallion to found an entire breed in his likeness.

During the Civil War, Morgans served as cavalry mounts and artillery horses. A cavalryman was only as good as his horse and the Morgan is mentioned in many sources as a highly desired horse during the Civil War.
Chivalry We live in an age where the brutality and the vigilante justice of the knight errant is no longer acceptable for people with positions of stature in society. While courage and honor are still praised by society, one rarely finds a man true to his word regardless of cost. Chivalry towards ladies is sometimes mistakenly decried by those supporting equality for women. And Courtly love, in it's modern form, is frowned upon. Those who might have a keen sense of justice often have only indirect methods of fighting for the right -- legislation just can never be as satisfying as clouting a knave over the head with the flat of a blade.
For instance, they have helped with farm work that humans couldn’t have done by themselves, and they were a mode of human transportation for many years.

Settlers during the Westward movement spread and established horse racing throughout Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, and eventually California. Not only did horses help settlers to work the land and travel, but they also provided a means of entertainment and pleasure at the track.

Each of these races provides a challenge for the horses that partake in them.

Iago was enraged when Othello did not promote him to lieutenant, choosing instead the handsome, young, affluent, Cassio. Iago felt that he was more entitled to the position than Cassio. Cassio was a brillant strategist, but had very little experience on the battlefield. Iago, on the other hand, had an abundance of battle experience and felt that he was passed over only for appearances' sake. This idea may very well be true.

Certainly, nobody expected Jounouchi Hideyasu and Hase Ryouji, of all people, to form an alliance with each other; they were, after all, as opposite as opposites could be. Hideyasu was level-headed and guarded; who thought things through down to the tiniest detail before acting upon his decisions. Ryouji was hot-headed and reckless; whose emotions ruled his actions. Hideyasu was determined to rise to the top of the ranks; he took on fights that were easy – sure, they were small fry, but every win counted on the scoreboard, and they were easy-pickings – avoided fights that he couldn’t win – it was a waste of time fighting a fight he couldn’t win anyway; let the stronger teams take each other out, and with every new loss, Team Invitto only gained – and his eye never wavered from his goal. Ryouji wanted to be the strongest of them all; he paid no attention to weaker teams – fighting small fry were a waste of his time – challenged only the strongest teams – the ones who were worth defeating – and charged his way headfirst to his goal.
The breeders never did know what to do with those kinds. They are truly great icons of the Arabian horse, but tarnish the breed. The breeders; however, do know that horses like the black should never be underestimated, and breeders like themselves should not either.
Hotspur is perceived as a solider; which is an impressive trait except that he also becomes blinded by his greed. Hotspur is so blinded by victory, power, and greed so much that he forgets how strong his opposition is. Hotspur is given opportunities by the King to stop the rebellion without any consequences for him and his men but he refuses. He continues to start the rebellion even when his father Northumberland pulls out of the battle because of sickness. Hotspur only is loyal to one thing and that is the battlefield because it has never proven him wrong.
Beowulf fought constant battles defending many people without ever seeking power; although, he was proud of achievements and it came off as bravado it was not so much pride as more so stating his deeds at the time. He fought to save people, and his death endangered an entire society, as possible threats who would hear of it would most certainly take it as an opportunity to invade. There was only one Beowulf and one Sir Gawain. Sir Gawain only set out to fight for the King’s honor, easily “replaceable” as a knight but not as a man whose reputation preceded him. Comparably, his entire journey is minimized by the sheer force and vigor which Beowulf lead his life.
