Confederate Capt. Adam "StovePipe" Johnson of Henderson Kentucky needed some weapons. So he attacked Newburgh, Indiana with 2 "cannons" one being a blackened log and the other being a piece of stovepipe. The Yankees gave up their muskets without a fight.
LOL He bluffed those Union Hoosiers out of their wepons, didn't he wolf?
I found the following on an Indiana Government History site.

On July 18, 1862, a brash young Kentuckian with aspirations to military advancement, Adam R.“Stovepipe” Johnson, used a rowboat and a small flatboat ferry to lead a group of approximately thirty men across the Ohio River from Kentucky to Newburgh, Indiana. Landing on the waterfront, unoccupied at lunch time, Johnson and his men seized a small store of weapons from a riverside warehouse and bluffed a group of some eighty Union soldiers convalescing in a nearby hotel into surrendering their unloaded muskets. Johnson’s men then looted a few homes and stores, paroled their prisoners, and returned safely across the river with their booty. The entire action lasted only a few hours.

-The article went on to recount how Union Captain Bethell, recovered a portion of the stolen arms—as well as his local reputation—at a farm in Henerson Kentucky some time later..
Just as one would expect from an Indiana source. LOL
So they got some of the muskets back, big deal. That still doesn't change the fact that "Stovepipe" bluffed them out.

Thank you wolf. That was a worthwhile read.

My disdain for television ministries (and possibly Una's) along with the story of Stovepipe Johnson's Civil War hoax, reminds me of one of my favorite classic movies. Sinclair Lewis 1927 story portrayed in the 1960 film by Burt Lancaster as "Elmer Gantry". Good Day folks, time for me to get ready for "The Little Brown Church in the Wildwood" that is not so little anymore and no longer brown.
Well at least you have reached an age and a level of common sense that allows you to keep things well in perspective, organized religion included. If the minister at your church called upon the congregation to go out tonight and burn someone at the stake... for say, witchcraft...would you be in that crowd Old Wolf? I think not.

LOL I remember when the Jim Bakker-Jessica Hahn sex scandal made all the headlines and the nightly news...I was working for a concrete outfit at the time and the site manager had let it out that he had sent in 600 bucks to old Jim a week or so before all that scandal stuff came out. Man we all gave that fellow a hard time for months over that.
I bet you remember old Oral Roberts telling his "flock" that God had personally told him that if he didn't raise eight million dollars by a certain date God was going to call him home....
I wonder what Jesus would have done to old Oral's corporate headquarters if he had shown up right after Oral claimed all that nonsense in the name of the Lord?
Perhaps he would have overturned all their benches of .....paper doves. And told them not to make a pure den of thieves out to be servants of the good and merciful Lord.
I wonder how many gullible poor went hungry back then because they sent him their money?
No one is without sin including me for sure, I can attest to that from personal experience.
But that Oral Roberts claim, in my opinion, was closer to blasphemy than anything we have read here on this thread.

My favorite was the television evangelist that needed plastic surgery because he said laying his head on the prayer request of his followers had caused the ink from the letters to seep into his skin and caused wrinkles.
Really?
I actually went to the Heritage USA / PTL theme park when it was open. It was interesting. I wonder what ever happened to that place, it was massive!

And I bet that site did not tell you that when the Yankees occupied Stovepipe's hometown of Henderson, that he and and 2 other guys snuck in around dark and fired on their headquarters running around the brick house where they were located and were firing shotguns at will thus the "Battle of Henderson". The Union soliers scattered back into the house firing blinding out of the upper windows and proceeded to kill a hog and it tracked around the house obviously "bleeding like a stuck hog" and these fine marksmen claimed they had killed or wounded 'a many a rebel" while StovePipe and is two associates went off into a nearby field and slept soundly for the rest of the night. LOL The Evansville Journal grabbed the headlines : "BLOODY WAR ON THE BORDER, Provost Guard attacked by 300 guerillas. After a deperate resistance of over 9 hours, THEY SUCCEED IN DRIVING OFF THE ENEMY WITH HEAVY LOSS", Just too too funny.

I agree--- what always bothers me is the people that send in money are often the ones least able to do so. It plays on the elderly, mentally ill and people with limited resources. The prosperity gospel of the 90's where they said send $100 and God will bless you with $1000. People go without food, medicine and gas so they can send to these jerks --- oh you got me up on my soap box showing that red headed temper now!

@Imposter and Miss E.. some of my Civil War stories are available in paperback at most book stores called "Hidden History of KENTUCKy in the Civil War" by Berry Craig.

But my favorite and most researched is a hardback "Great Battles and Leading Figures of the CIVIL WAR".

In that book and I have also found on the internet, a picture of William Tecumseh Sherman and to me, he resembles Clint Eastwood about the time he was appearing in all those spaghetti westerns.

LOL and LOL again! that was too much! Over three hundred rebels to choose from (so they said) and the only casualty was that poor old spooked hog!

I have never been a racist but I have always been a rebel. A black employee once asked me why I kept a little rebel flag sticker on the back window of my work truck and then turned around and hired so many men of color. I told him he needed to review American civil war history and then he would see just how little slavery had to do with the civil war. I know it had its part, but it was a small part.
I also informed him that I hired men based on experience and/or ability, and kept them based on their work, dependability, honesty and integrity and willingness to learn.
I have always thought that a persons true colors on the inside had little to do with the color of their skin on the outside.
I later partnered up with a black MAN and we made a small construction business into a pretty good sized company.
I would trust him with my life to this day. He was one of the hardest working family men I ever had the pleasure to work with.
Many people just dont understand that being a rebel doesn't mean a man is a racist.

Man that civil war history is some interesting stuff Wolf. I cant get enough of it.

When I was about 16 I was in a girls private school and every Sunday we attended church services with the people that lived in a nearby town. One Sunday my best friend was acting the fool during communion and I got tickled and spewed my grape juice all over the older lady and her beehive hairdo.
I got kicked out of church for two weeks. Didn't seem like much of a punishment because it meant I got to sleep in for the next two Sundays.

@Imposter.. I agree that rebels are not necessarily racists, just strongly independent like ourselves. Some of my best employees and friends have been men and women of many races and cultures and I detest bigotry and racism.

In the StovePipe Johnson attack on Henderson, there were only 3 guerillas with shotguns but the Yankees drove them off after 9 hours of fierce battle with the hog. LOL but the Indiana newpaper reported it as 300.

and from the other side.. Union sergeant Robert Pierce (a Kentuckian) escaped his Confederate captors by floating naked draped over a fence railing pretending that he could not swim without the fence and needed a bath just like the other rebels that were frolicking in the river. His logic was that they could not tell much difference between a naked Yankee and a naked Rebel. It worked. LOL
