The diets that the people had during the Civil War were fascinating. Each had a different type of food and diet that they had to live through due to the scarce in food and supplies. The most fascinating food that I see would be the hardtrack. This type of food is a simple type of biscuit or cracker that the soldier would use during the Civil War. I really admire the size of the bread and how well it could be preserved even during the Civil War till now. The hardtrack is also easy to create with only flour, water. You may throw in some salt to add flavor in it. It may seem to be just a simple old cracker but to me it’s like a survival food with a great history.
The type of food item that I could not live without would be rice. Even though it’s not always the most health of food, rice is still easy to carry, make, and is quite satisfying for a simple meal. Rice seems to go well with other dishes and can easily be a useful side dish.
