    In response to Raedwald

I live close to a cave from which the C.S.A. dug and leached saltpetre and also hid caisons from Federal raiders.

a larger cave (Desoto Caverns) 60 miles to my south used to have a saltpetre leaching vat set up for display in a heavily dug section of the cave floor.

of course the charcoal came from the same operations that supplied the charcoal for the local iron furnaces.

but i've no idea where our sulphur was mined from......
