Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Hardtack was] positively unsuitable fodder for anything that claims to be human...and I think it no exaggeration to say that any intelligent pig possessing the least spark of pride would have considered it a pure insult to have them put into his swill."

I bought this for a friend who is a re-enactor of the Civil War. He has found this book to be of interest during some of their encampments.

Really fun book. Lots of tasty tidbits of information. Covers North and South very well and fringes into civlian food availability. Gives a good feel for what really happened and why. I would not say it makes me hungry to read it with some of the food choices!! woohoooo. Yummy. It will make your modern food choices seem simply amazing.
