This Year's Powder Monkey
Powder Monkeys were members of a warship's crews during the Age Of Sail. They carried bags of gunpowder from the powder magazine
in the ship's hold to the gun crews. Powder Monkeys were usually young boys and even sometimes girls. They were selected for the job for their speed and height.
