GUEST,Q Lyr Req: Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines (28) RE: captain jinks of the horse marines 10 Aug 03

"Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines" first appeared as a cat in 1861, a black and white Maine Coon cat. This from the website of "The Maine Coon Breeders and Fanciers Association": Captain Jinks Coon Cat

Some websites claim that the song was popular during the Civil War.

Did the song inspire the words jinx and hijinks? No one knows.
