Joseph & Liste,
Thanks for the input, it's about what I was thinking. I know we had
discussed "gathering water" or some such subject on the list not long ago,
but I didn't remember anyone mentioning cisterns. I think copper cisterns
might have been found in larger taverns, say in Boston or Phildelphia. . . .

It is impossible to carry on a war without oppressing the inhabitants in
some degree; and however disagreeable
and inconvenient it may be to the people, and to those in power, a regard to
the common good and general safety
will justify the measure.
Nathaniel Greene to President Joseph Reed, 1 August 1780
