A unique book covering the rarely-explored history of military cooking and food from the American Revolution through the Civil War.

Written by a former Living History reenactor at Historic Fort Snelling, this book provides a wealth of detail on the foods eaten by the army and the army's camp followers. The result is an accurate picture of the daily struggle of feeding the inhabitants of a frontier military post.

Illustrated, with an extensive bibliography, notes, and glossary, and several recipes, the book is an indispensable resource for anyone involved in reenactment from that era, and with fascinating detail and historical nuggets for anyone interested in reading about early American military life.
