      As it appears to be related to the discussion of theatres of war, the
      following is an interesting excerpt from an online article concerning
      the South's gunpowder 'war' by Jack Trammell dated July 30, 2005:
      http://www.washtimes.com/civil war/20050730-102307-1080r.htm

      "In the case of the Army of Northern Virginia, Lee's quartermasters
      and supply officers also benefited from the fact that two-thirds of
      the immediately available mineral resources of the Confederacy were in
      Virginia."

      I'm not sure how true this might be.
