: I remember reading once that an officer wrote (during the Revolution) that his riflemen needed "powder, FFF." I believe it was in the book, "The Frontier Rifleman." If anybody would like, I can find the exact reference.
YES!! By all means! If you can find that reference, then it establishes that they used the same grading of powder we do today. Or at least, that they did grade powder back then. Wonder if it was GOEX? *kidding*
