GAH, I have 4 words left, and I have no idea what the answers are. If I don't finish this, it's going to keep nagging at me. HELP PLEASE.

By the way, it's a Civil War theme:
1. Cone-shaped shells replaced these. (11 spaces, I think the first letter is a 'm.')
2. Person not in the army. (8 spaces, the last letter is 'n.')
3. Method by which Confederacy raised money from farmers. (9 spaces, starts with a 't,' third letter is 'x.' I think it's 'tax' something. But I don't know.)
4. A reaction to the draft law. (4 spaces.)

actually will 'riot' fit for number 4? Let me know if you get a letter clue for 4.

Yeah, I think 2. is 'civilian,' and 4. is 'riot.' AWESOME. (: Just two more.

As you're asking on the internet for help already, you could just try google. You can get the answer to one straight away by entering: confederacy farmers tax.

The Confederacy actually raised money through planned inflation by printing money, since they did not have an effective IRS bureaucracy set up like the North had. Inflation is kind of like a flat tax where everyone suffers.

Tax in kind? OHH, cool. I was trying to find it on Google, but I guess I phrased it wrong when I was trying to search it, lol.
