In "The Civil War" documentary, by Ken Burns, it says that during the Civil War, the homemade liquor made by the troops was called, "Nockum Stiff", "Bust-Head", "Pop Skull", and "Oh Be Joyful".
On the "Beverly Hillbillies", they sometimes called it "White Lightning."
I think nowadays it is commonly called "moonshine."
My high school English teacher, Mr. Chessmore, taught us a little poem:
I had a little girl,
She lived on a hill,
She's a moonshiner's daughter,
but I love her still.
