Homework#2: America runs on coffee

I was never a big fan of coffee until I became a college student. During my very first finals week, I caught myself consuming coffee – not so much because of the bitter taste, but because of the energy that the caffeine would give me. When my body felt like shutting down, I would give it caffeine to push forward. During the time of the Civil War, soldiers were fighting for their lives – there was no time to be picky about food. It only makes sense that in order to continue, the Civil War soldiers must’ve consumed something to give them the energy to continue fighting. Soldiers felt dependent on coffee. It makes sense as to why there’s many coffee shops nowadays & as to why “America runs on Dunkin’”.
