ABSTRACT
This article recalls the use of baked beans by U.S. soldier J. E. B. Stuart for his LeMat grapeshot revolver during the American civil war in 1861. Stuart unexpectedly found a solution for his own needs while struggling with the cook's sowbelly and navy bean concoction. Stuart said that he had not actually killed anyone with the beans but his enemies died of indigestion.
