9780803235229: A Taste for War: The Culinary History of the Blue and the Gray

For soldiers in all wars, mealtime is a focal point of the day. Armies do indeed “march on their stomachs,” as Napoleon said. Soldiers of the Civil War armies, many away from home and mothers’ and wives’ cooking for the first time, were thrown back on their own resources both to prepare their own meals and often to stock their larders. No one in America, North or South, was prepared for the massive task of acquiring and distributing the uncountable tons of foodstuffs necessary to keep almost three million men fed. And yet food and mealtime were the dominant topics of interest and conversation, and the fodder for a great deal of the war lore. A Taste for War looks at what soldiers ate during the Civil War, where they got it, how they prepared it, and what they thought of it.

Leavened with first-person accounts of finding and preparing food, A Taste for War includes more than two hundred recipes drawn from soldiers’ letters and diaries and from the few cookery guides furnished them by their governments. The recipes are adapted with instructions for modern preparation that allow readers to recreate the distinctive flavors and aromas of the Civil War.

About the Author:

William C. Davis is a professor of history and the director of programs of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech. Three-time winner of the Jefferson Davis Award, Davis is the author of more than forty books on Civil War and Southern history, including Look Away! A History of the Confederate States of America.

Review:

“Nowhere else will one find so full a plate on so essential a topic.”—Library Journal (Library Journal)

A Taste for War reveals the truth about how Confederate and Union troops survived despite their less than nutritious intake and seriously deficient cooking skills. . . . [An] often amusing—and just as often stomach-turning—look at the Civil War soldiers’ victuals.”—Civil War Times (Brenda Wilt Civil War Times)

“Without a doubt, A Taste for War adds a new dimension to the voluminous historiography of the Civil War. . . . A Taste for War is an essential work for understanding the Civil War era (1860–1865) and the lives of the ordinary soldier.”—Journal of Popular Culture (Mark D. Van Ells Journal of Popular Culture)

"This softbound reprint is sure to be a hit with food historians as well ass reenactors and others interested in the food eaten by soldiers during the Civil War."—Rick Sauers, Gray & Blue (Rick Sauers Gray & Blue)

"An entertraining, informative look at a usually ignored aspect of wartime life."—A. A. Nofi, Strategy Page (A. A. Nofi Strategy Page)
