HW #2 Civil War Soldier’s Diet.


Any vegetable is the food that I cannot live without. I love their colors, flavors, and textures. I am not vegetarian yet they account for a big percentage of my diet.

What I found really fascinating about the Civil War soldier’s diet was, how coffee was almost like an indispensable weapon to fight. And not only gave them strength to fight, keep them alive in battle, but also the sentimental attachment by consider coffee the only warm thing they had. I relate to this feeling for coffee of the soldiers, with my personal love for coffee. A cup of black coffee for me is a throwback in time when I was nine years old and I waited every morning and afternoon for a sip of coffee from my grandma’s cup. Always dark, hot, and sweet.
