Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
An author spoke at the Friends of the Library on Friday night at my university. He spoke about the Civil War and reconstruction - and he had a "miniball" in his pocket. He explained why so many amputations in the Civil War - because these things destroyed limbs, didn't just pass through or cause small injuries.

I hope you guys aren't making your own ammo.
