CRAP !!
There's a man riding a horse on Delaware's State Quarter, but his name is Caesar Rodney.
In 1776, Rodney, a Brigadier-general of the Delaware Militia was sick with cancer and asthma, but rode his horse 80 miles through terrible weather from Delaware to Philadelphia to get to the continental congress vote on declaring independence from Britain. Rodney got there in time to cast the tie-breaker.
