Excerpt from History of the Confederate Powder Works

In the history of a war we find, generally, but little reference to the manufactories engaged in the preparation of material; they had been previously established, and were in active operation before its commencement, their products being immediately available for active Operations. An instance can scarcely be found in modern warfare where previous preparations had not been made, and where the necessary manufacturing work's did not already exist.

The late war was entered upon unexpectedly. Throughout the Southern country it was supposed that the North would not serious ly oppose a secession of the States from the Federal compact, hence no previous provision had been made for such contingency, and no material of war gathered.

Manufactories existed on a very limited scale, and none for war purposes, hence their speedy erection was of extreme importance, and had to be accomplished under the most unfavorable conditions.
