Tennessee Restrictions Removed.

We are pleased to see it announced in the telegraphic dispatches from Washington, that more restrictions upon trade in Tennessee have been removed, by order of the Secretary of the Treasury. The shipment of arms, ammunition, grey uniforms and grey cloth is allowed to and from the State. It supply the people at once with powder, lead, shot and caps, as well a with squirrel guns and fowling pieces. They are needed, and will not, it is presumed, be used improperly by the citizens. A law of the State, enacted just before the Legislature adjourned, authorizes loyal citizens to carry their private arms for self-defense. It is therefore but right that they should have the privilege of purchasing ammunition.

[Brownlow's Knoxville Whig, and Rebel Ventilator, Knoxville, Tenn., Wednesday, July 26, 1865. Volume II. Number 24. Pg. 2]

The American Civil War had ended on June 2, 1865.

If they stamp out spam you would never be able to post again troll so be careful for what you ask for, you might just get it.

Hey traitor-troll, you do understand what "willfully discharge any gun or fire arms (except in necessary defense of self or property)" means, RIGHT?
