Cameron S. HW#2: Food and Coffee During the Civil War

What I found the most interesting about a soldier’s obsession and need for coffee during the Civil War was that even when coffee wasn’t available they would aim to find a substitute; Going as far as grinding up corn or beets to brew their fix of ‘coffee’ sounds absurd to me. The Civil War obviously being traumatic to the many who served, makes me believe coffee served as something regular and ‘positive’ to them, and helped give a sense of safety or motivation in different scenarios whilst having to deal with the terror of war.

My favorite food is pasta; I love spaghetti, lasagna, baked ziti, etc. and couldn’t imagine living without all these different noodles
