Hw 2 food and coffee in the civil war

If I was a soldier during the Civil War, I don’t know if I would have made it. I’m a vegetarian, so I can’t survive off of meat and differently not potatoes, and pieces of bread. I need more proteins and vitamins in my diet to help me throughout the day. I love food, but I don’t think I can eat the same food over and over again, especially if it lacks flavor. Soldiers in the Civil War loved coffee because it gave them energy and it was a sense of comfort. Commercial’s these days make coffee seem like it is the only thing that you would want and need, but I don’t like coffee.

I find it strange that some people can’t start there day without first drinking a cup of coffee. I never felt the need to drink coffee because I’m always drinking tea. Coffee is very bitter unless you sweeten it. If the soldiers ran out of sugar they were forced to drink bitter coffee.

I personally love green vegetables and seafood. I get my daily vitamins and protein by eating this often. I don’t mind eating this over again because I can always give it different seasonings to spice things up.
