I chose my username because I am a Utah fan, and I lived in Washington, D.C. when I registered for Wikipedia.
Now I have graduated from law school and am back in Salt Lake City, but I kept my original username.
Quaker guns in former Confederate fortifications at Manassas Junction, Virginia, in March 1862. Quaker guns were widely used as a deception tactic in warfare during the 18th and 19th centuries. Although resembling an actual cannon, the Quaker gun was simply a wooden log, usually painted black. The name derives from the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, who have traditionally held a religious opposition to war and violence in the Peace Testimony.
Great work on your edits to Holy War (Utah vs. BYU). You did a good job of making balanced edits to an article that sees some very partisan and biased edits. I tried to find a 'Keeping It Real' barnstar, but I don't think there is one. So thanks for not letting your own views get in the way of writing a fair and complete article.
