You know I'm no tree hugger but that just doesn't look like something we should be doing.
(Appletons' Annual Cyclopaedia and Register of Important Events. 1899. p. 440.) The term originating in Seneca, Georgia, USA during the country's civil war, mistpouffers, or Seneca Guns, are the rumble of the artillery fire. The civilians of Seneca claimed to have felt the rumbles during the Battle of Seneca. The battlefield was 5 miles away, but the people still felt the rumble over this distance (Johnson 5). The battle was won by the Confederate army, which was being led in the struggle by "Stonewall" Jackson. The term was coined by the Seneca Press saying, "The guns of the Seneca rumbled the houses throughout the night." The term is now used for any natural or artificial rumble felt. An alternative explanation for the term "Seneca guns" is also provided. In 1850, James Fennimore Cooper (author of “Last of the Mohicans”) wrote a story, “The Lake Gun,” describing the phenomenon, which seems to have popularized the term.
Mistpouffers are unexplained reports that sound like a cannon or a sonic boom. They have been heard in many waterfront communities around the world such as the banks of the river Ganges in India, the East Coast and inland Finger Lakes of the United States, as well as areas of the North Sea, Japan and Italy; and sometimes away from water. Names (according to area) are:
Bangladesh: Barisal Guns
Italy: "brontidi" or "marinas"
Netherlands and Belgium: "mistpoeffers"
United States: "Guns of the Seneca"
