Swedish Match AB, the worlds largest manufacturer of high quality Swedish Snus, has sent a sign of solidarity and support to Swedish snus users in both the EU and the USA. In a bold move showing true Viking spirit, a new limited edition version of Göteborgs Rape' in camauflage was created to commemorate the globe-spanning, extremist war against the least harmful and best tasting source of nicotine on the planet: Swedish Snus.

The official reason for the Battle Snus was made public today: "Exclusive Göteborgs Rapé camouflage can in limited edition.........In connection with the Swedish Armed Forces final military exercise “Joint Challenge” in May 2010 Göteborgs Rapé was sold in a unique camouflage design. This limited edition, totaling 3500 cans, was developed in cooperation with Scandinavian Facility Management AB.

In reality, Joint Challenge 2010 is the code name for the war being waged against Real Swedish snus by the United States and the European Union!

With all the recent legislation that aims to prohibit the use of tobacco among adult consumers, we often forget about the people caught in the middle: the tobacco farmer. The American tobacco farmer is the first link in the chain that stretches from the planted seed to the hand-delivered package that arrives on our doorsteps or the sealed container that we buy at the convenience store.

While the tobacco companies and the anti-tobacco coalitions make money hand over fist regardless of outside circumstances, the farmer is only as good as his crop. His laurels rest on what he can produce today, and what he can produce tomorrow.

A little over a hundred years ago, a literal war was fought in the tobacco growing hills of southwestern Kentucky and northern Tennessee, an area known as the "Black Patch". All sides that participated have been viewed equally as heroes or villains, depending on who is telling the tale. I set out with this article to be as objective as possible, and to paint the events as they happened.

The ramifications of the war are still resonant today, but many people are unaware of this curious (and disturbing) chapter in American history. Let's look back at what became known as the Black Patch War of 1906.
