[Fwd: MIL: "My Got!" (Antietam #10)]
> LOUISVILLE DAILY JOURNAL, October 4, 1862.
> At Antietam, blacksmiths' tools, hammers, chisels &c., were fired at
> our troops from rebel cannon. Some of these missiles made a curious noise,
> 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."
