On January 1, 1959, when Batista gave power to Castro he was in charge of the large city of Cienfuegos in Villas Province. We shall remember that Batista forces surrendered all large cities and military garrisons without fighting.

In Cienfuegos City, Morgan joined the caravan of Fidel Castro in route to Havana on January 9. He became one of the most popular leaders of the revolution because he not only was an American but he had shown his valor in the ambushes of Banao, Trinidad and other places while in the mountains.

Everyone knew Morgan did not get along well with Che Guevara or Felix Torres another important revolutionary leader. For that reason some members of the Batista's regime contacted Morgan to have an uprising and take the city of Trinidad. Morgan together with Eloy Gutierrez

Morgan then following Castro's instructions told the conspirators that he had the city under control ready waiting for them to support him.
