GUEST,TJ in San Diego Dirty Civil War songs about chamberpots (12) RE: Dirty Civil War songs about chamberpots 27 Apr 10

It has been stated that more than a third of all the saltpeter used for Confederate ammunition in the last years of the Civil War was from the contents of chamberpots. Apparently, households were widely asked to contribute this as a duty to the cause.

I have never seen a song relating to or celebrating this aromatic rite of "passage." I don't see any reason why one couldn't put together a little verse today, though...
