...and the name?

White Nitro

Long before computers appeared, when the river men managing the huge logging drives in Northern New England would hit an impasse because the hundreds of tons of logs got hopelessly tangled together, they would turn to powerful methods to free them. Due to its strength and light weight compared to dynamite, white nitroglycerin called white nitro was the explosive of choice and they used it to blast these log jams apart.

So, along the rivers and valleys of New England, White Nitro became known as a quick, powerful solution to a seemingly impossible problem.
