     Note: The great quantity of shoddy goods furnished as army
           supplies in the late Civil War in the United States
           gave wide currency to the word, and it came to be
           applied to persons who pretend to a higher position in
           society than that to which their breeding or worth
           entitles them; this term is now (1997) rarely used in
           that sense.
           [1913 Webster +PJC]
