      Left ear.



      First Bull Run.



      After ramming home a charge himself.so I think that makes sense as his left
      side would have been toward the muzzle if he was facing forward when the pin
      was pulled.

      Which ear, which Bull Run?

      You know John Imboden went deaf in one ear because he was too close to
      the
      muzzle of a gun at Bull Run.

      LOL..the other day I was reading a letter that included a
      complaint
      about the Belgian muskets issued to certain Federal troops at the
      beginning
      of the war. The author of the letter said the safest place to be when
      dealing with that musket was IN FRONT of the gun. :-)
