I only knew the "Tar Heel" bit, from having encountered it years ago in a novel, narrated from the point of view of a section of the Confederate army, in the field with Stonewall Jackson. The North Carolinian units fail in some way -- by omission or commission -- to please Stonewall; who throws quite a tantrum about the Tar Heels, and what insubordinate bastards they are.
