Book Description

Over 150 full-color photos inspired by nineteenth century recipes, anecdotes, and the Civil War

History Lover’s Cookbook will transport readers through the Battle of First Bull Run/Manassas to April 9, 1865, where General Robert E. Lee stood under an apple tree to dispatch his surrender to General Grant. Do you know what he was eating when he surrendered?

Prepare a picnic of lemonade, raspberry shrub, mint julep, fried chicken, ham sandwiches, potato salad with boiled dressing, cold slaw, soda biscuits and quince marmalade to observe one of the many Civil War re-enactments throughout the United States.

Enjoy eating tea cakes while viewing more than 150 full-color photos of replica Civil War items, re-enactors portraying Abraham Lincoln, Generals Custer, Lee and Grant, foods and recipes inspired by the nineteenth century.

Share in the Union’s Thanksgiving holiday by preparing recipes from the chapter, Siege at Petersburg.

Find out what General Grant ate every morning with his breakfast.

Roxe Anne Peacock brings the nineteenth century and Civil War era to life through the wonderful photography depicted throughout the book.

This is one of those rare cookbooks that while nice to have on kindle.. is one that I'd rather have a physical copy. This is a very unique cookbook as it has all of these little stories followed with the recipes to make what is being eaten in the story as well! So many wonderful color photos too! If you would like to experience your own bit of time travel.. get this book.. and prepare to go back in time! I like that the author included various recipes that I had in my own collection from my Grandmothers.. and even explained what some of the items were.. that I was unsure of.. such as a fruit called quince! Most of the recipes have easy to find ingredients found in most pantries. Well written, well indexed.. One that should be in every history lover's collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars History and Food - two of my favoirtes February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a marvelous look at history with details I never knew. The photographs are amazing and the recipes are delightful to view. Interesting how similiar they are to some we cook today. These people certainly did not have the variety of food choices we have, yet the food looks hearty, healthy and tasty. Please take the time to download this book and share with your friends, if only for the historic value.

From the popular 19th century beverage, Raspberry Shrub to the delectable Planked Shad Bake to the decadent Bread Pudding with Custard Sauce, we're swept along on an exqusite journey through time via this remarkable compilation of the Civil War years from Ms. Peacock's perspective. With each recipe made, each picture shared and each morsal of history put to words...our insight AND our taste buds will never be the same! Highly recommended. ENJOY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in time! March 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author of this delightful eBook takes you on a trip that is interesting as well as delicious.
Filled with 'receipts' and sprinkled with lovely photos of reenactment folk as well as the dishes.

Deviled eggs tied together with bits of fine ribbon, how charming! The raspberry shrub is to die for, and I'll be making it a lot this summer. And I can't wait to can some brandied peaches.

Much, much more than historical receipts, Ms. Peacock takes you through the Civil War era like someone who has lived it.
Clearly from a Southern perspective, but this Yankee found it fascinating and informative.
