Dixie Guns Works sells, or at one time sold a tool to cut and form your
own percussion caps. The metal cups were made from unrolled aluminum
soda or beer cans. I don't remember the chemicals used for ignition, but
I believe they were common items anyone could buy.

degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is
worth a war, is worse." --- John Stuart Mill:
