HW #2: Food and Coffee in the Civil War

After reading the articles of the soldiers in the civil war, the most fascinating thing about Civil War soldier’s diet is how they could stand with only the small amounts of meat, coffee and hardtack. I can imagine how important the coffee was to soldiers is This time because the coffee kept them warm and awake at a time when they were scared and very hungry, according to “Tori Avey” in Civil War Kitchen: What the soldiers of the Union they ate ” Boiled in an open kettle, and on the color of a brown stone front, it was a sin … the only warm thing we had. ”

Personally I think that coffee is the food that I could not live with because the coffee has a high amount of caffeine which would help me any time I have in the energy and I would even relax my hunger.
