I’ve noticed some discussion in other threads about rifle musket ammunition. Some of those posts were about the English version of the minie ball. The English was wrapped in a waxed cardboard tube, while the American version was wrapped In paper. I found this brochure by General Josiah Gorgas the Confederate Chief of Ordinates. I find it interesting that the English cartridge has been in use for about 3 years before the directive came out on how to use it. Ironically, I now live in Macon not too far from the site, which is represented by a simple marker.
