The word HOOKER came into being during the civil war because of union general joseph hooker's fondness for ladies of pleasure. while the army of the potomac was camped outside fredericksburg, VA, hooker often sent an orderly into town to bring several women out to spend the night with him. when the women were challenged as they approached the camp sentries, the general's orderlies would call out: "let them pass! they're hooker's!"
