      > resembling "which way, which way." By which our men came to distinguish them
      > from regular shot and shell, and as they heard them approaching they would
      > cry "Turkey! turkey coming!" and fall flat to avoid them. One of our
      > artillerists, a German, when he saw the tools falling around him, exclaimed,
      > "My Got, we shall have the blacksmith shop to come next."
