How to Make Black Powder

If you would like to make your own black powder Bland County Survivorman shows you how he made some following the instructions from the Foxfire book  #5: Ironmaking, Blacksmithing, Flintlock Rifles, Bear Hunting, and Other Affairs of Plain Living. “The Foxfire Books were written by high school students in the late 1960s and early 1970s who interviewed older family and neighbors. This was southern Appalachia and these folks were still using old home remedies, killing hogs and using every last bit of the animal, living in log cabins and making moonshine. The students wanted to start a magazine with articles on how the older generation were living. It all turned into 12 books full of old time lore”.(source.http://learningandyearning.com)
