My all time favorite is from Louisana

it is 1861, you are a young man who has joined up and tomorrow you leave to march off to war.

Tonight however, you are saying goodbye to your best girl...down on the riverbank in the moonlight, a blanket spread on the ground, laying with your head in her lap and you tell her that you have joined....

The Madison Tipperays

What a name....

This chapter is a discussion of muskets and rifles and the need to alter donated weapons for issue to new troops.
 
"Thomas Riggins, who owned a gun repair shop in Knoxville, Tennessee employed 60 assistants, working night and day to convert donated rifles and flintlocks into percussion carbines for a volunteer cavalry regiment known as the East Tennessee Squirrel Shooters.
