Johnson & Dow received patents #33,393, #34,061, and #35,687 dated October 1, 1861, January 7, and June 24, 1862 for their cartridges. Using paper or fabric that was treated to make it combustible, the cartridge case was rolled and pasted to the bullet. It was then coated with collodion to make it waterproof.

The fact that many of these cartridges are still recovered in complete condition attests to the "waterproof" claims of the inventors.

This non-dug .58 caliber, 3-ring, "minie ball" cartridge exhibits a few repaired cracks in the casing but remains in exceptionally good condition. [jet] [ph:jet]
