Well, this thread has wandered a bit...there is an old song about the Southern soldiers in the midst of battle, the smell of the powder smoke giving rise to, ummm, rhymes with direction. Wish I could find that tune!
Lyrics here:

So, in keeping with the theme of this thread, we need some Blue/Gray re-enactors to face off in a battlefield singing this song.  Let's see, get some chamber pots, petticoats, and pretty ladies... yeah, that would suit for some quick cutaways on the hit points.  Would that make it truth?
Jim Beam me, Scotty!  Life here is more intelligent than I.

Y'all talk much,  say little.  It must be a yankee thang. I frequently enjoy correcting "intelligent" sounding fast talkers with my heavy, inherent drawl. The expression on a yankee's face as he realizes his intellectual inferiority is priceless. 32 28 92 16, yes, you?

I'm a little late but here tis
YANKEE VIEW OF IT

John Haralson, John Haralson, we’ve read in song and story,
How women’s tears, through all the years, have moistened fields of glory.
But never was it told before, how ‘mid such scene of slaughter
Your Southern beauties dried their tears and went to making water.

No wonder that your boys were brave; who couldn’t be a fighter,
If every time he fired his gun, he used his sweetheart’s nitre.
And vice versa, what could make a Yankee soldier sadder,
Than dodging bullets fired by a pretty woman’s bladder?
They say there was a subtle smell which lingered in the powder
And as the smoke grew thicker and din of battle louder,
That there was found in this compound one serious objection—
No soldier boy could sniff it without having an erection!!
The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps.
General Alexander A. Vandergrift, USMC
to the Senate Naval Affairs Committee, 5 May 1946

The confederate version

John Haralson, John Haralson—you are a wretched creature;
You’ve added to this bloody war a new and useful feature.
You’d have us think, while every man is bound to be a fighter,
The Ladies, bless the pretty dears, should save their pee for nitre.

John Haralson, John Haralson, where did you get the notion,
To send the barrel ‘round to gather up the lotion?
We thought the girls had work enough to making shirts and kissing,
But you have put the pretty dears to Patriotic Pissing.

John Haralson, John Haralson, pray do invent a neater,
And somewhat less immodest way of making your saltpetre.
For ‘tis an awful idea, John, gunpowdery and cranky
That when a lady lifts her skirts, she’s killing off and Yankee.

The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps.

For all the folks that are new to black powder guns and shooting. Rifles, pistols, and cleaning. I've been spending a little time looking at Information on (YOUTUBE) Please be careful with the infor you get coming off that site. I have run across some real bad videos on that site. Now saying that there are still some good people that are taping and posting good information to. So I just wanted to let you know that some of the information on (YOUTUBE) is BAD stuff. PLEASE if your not sure about something don't be shy to ask the fellas here on the 58 site question's about black powder guns when it comes to loading, powder's, cleaning your guns, making black powder. The list go's on and on. I just want folks to be able to enjoy thair guns without getting hurt or worse. This is one of the best hobbies and ways of hunting and shooting there is. I'd sure hate to see anyone get messed up cause of getting the wrong info from some jackass that don't know what the heck they'er talking about, and man have I watched some really bad ideas in the last few day's. OK I'll get off my soap box now.

Oh did I tell you there is some of the best informed fellas you ever want to meet right he on this forum. I wasn't sure where to post this so I put it h right here. Now if it's not raining in your neck of the woods let's make some safe smoke and enjoy it.  :9)  :)
AMEN AMEN and AMEN!!!!! On that note. Everyone please be careful of what you put on Utube and FB. Never know what kind of creeps are out there eyeing up your stuff. Or your loved ones! There are a lot of shitheads out out there!  :9)
