Mark-

  I have read in more than one place that General Jackson wrote a letter in April, 1861 that requisitioned 1000 pikes. I've never seen the text of the letter, but a line quoted from it supposedly said: "Under Divine blessing, we must rely on the bayonet when firearms cannot be furnished." I can't vouch for the accuracy of this information, but it might give you a lead.
