Civil War Cooking: The Confederacyby Dosier, Susan
Publisher: Blue Earth Books
Issue: Summer 2000
The Civil War Cooking books offer recipes for food eaten in the Civil War period updated for modern cooking techniques. Recipes are accompanied by simple descriptions of favorite foods, battlefield privations, and foraging on the run. Though presented as what soldiers might have cooked and eaten, several recipes require equipment that the average foot soldier would not have carried in the field.
