You might want to try the Authentic Campaigner BB, and use their "search" function, this has been asked and answered many times.

....and after posting the above, Google up the Missouri Shoe and Boot Co. website and read about the hazards of using period correct painting on a haversack. Basically, use latex or suffer!
Just FYI, the correct Jackson quote is:
"Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees."

Don Smith at Trans Mississippi Depot seems to be using the period recipe with no problems.
