Does anyone know of good sources for the use of rockets in battle and rocketry in general during the Civil War?  I know they had been used in battles since the Chinese invented gun powder back in the middle ages (or a bit before).  But in the depictions I've seen of the CW era, I have rarely seen them used as anything other than  some kind of a signal, but nothing was ever explained about HOW they were used to signal, ie: what it meant to have three rockets whistling overhead.
