Den siste sørstatsavdelingen overga seg
Den siste sørstatsavdelingen overga seg etter borgerkrigen i USA. Avdelingen ble ledet av cherokee-høvding og brigadergeneral Stand Watie. Watie nektet å akseptere nederlaget etter krigen, og fortsatte krigen lenger enn noen andre sørstatsgeneraler. Han holdt hæren sin på feltfot i nesten en måned etter at de siste andre sørstatstroppene overga seg og hele 75 dager etter at general Lee overga seg til Grant ved Appomattox Court House.

Waties lille hær besto av indianere fra stammene cherokee, seminole, creek og osage. Etter krigen vendte Watie tilbake til indianerterritoriet der han fant hjemmet sitt brent av nordstatssoldater. Han døde i 1871.

      What is Black Powder Shooting?

    • What is Black Powder Shooting?

      What is black powder shooting? What is black powder used for? Is it something for me? This article is meant as an introduction to the sport of black powder shooting, and it is also recommended as an introductory text to the svartkrutt.net web site. \"Svartkrutt\" means “black powder” in Norwegian.

    Øyvind Flatnes Svartkrutt.net is owned and maintained me whose name is Øyvind Flatnes. I'm a Norwegian black powder shooter and I started this web site in February 2000. The ambition was to provide Norwegians with a black powder site in our native language, but since then most of the content is also translated to English. I'm also the author of a black powder book, which was published in March 2005. This book is currently available in Norwegian only.

    On svartkrutt.net you can read my articles about various black powder related activities, participate on the international discussion board, chat or find interesting black powder or antique firearms on the market pages. The discussion forum has become a valuable archive of interesting articles. Sign up and participate!
