    The Rebel Raider & Murder in the Gunroom

    I just thought you might like this free eBook I found.
    Henry Beam Piper wrote mostly SciFi, but this is pure history.

    And this is a must for all you worshippers of the Holy black! With a Leech & Rigdon as a murder weapon.

    Never thought of my muzzleloading buddies as "the sulfur smelling crowd". Glad to see you smiled when you said that!
    Actually my buddies and I tend to think of ourselves as being more like eccentric retreads :eek: who enjoy hearing loud booms and seeing billowing clouds of smoke. As for sense of smell,most of us either had a poorly developed one to start with or else it faded so gradually over so many years that smell is more like something we remember on occasion rather than experience frequently. :eek:

    A friend told me once that he'd had a really bad case of gas, as he thought himself home alone he did what every guy would do. Then his wife walked in with a grocery bag, sniffed, and said "Didn't I tell you not to clean those guns in the kitchen?"

    :p
