The Powder Horn is a newsletter that was published semi-monthly by and for the employees of the Indiana Ordnance Works in Charlestown, Indiana. The first one was published 22 August 1941. It was preceded by a newsletter called The Action. The aim of the publication was to provide safety information, local history, and human interest stories to the employees. It is not clear how long this publication was published. Indiana Ordnance Works produced smokeless powder ordnance for the US government and was in operation until the end of World War II at which time it was reorganized and named Indiana Arsenal.
