    I'm thinking if he did indeed hear artillery fire on the 5th, it must have come from a Union outfit doing some live-fire practice. I don't know of anything like that taking place, but I'm sure nothing like that would have come from the Confederate army. If someone in that army had fired off a cannon on April 5th, that close to the Union army, they probably would have found themselves stuffed down the tube by Albert Sidney Johnston and flying toward Pittsburg Landing in short order. I would guess it was thunder, he got the date wrong, or a cannon in the Union camps got fired off for some reason. Perry
