Civil War Recipes: Receipts from the Pages of Godey's Lady's Book, edited by Lily May Spaulding and John Spaulding. Drawn from the famous 19th-century women's magazine, the included recipes were usually submitted by middle-class readers from the rural North and South, and were intended for common dishes of every day rather than grand occasions. The authors have added facts about Confederate and Union army rations, customary cooking utensils, and food substitutions frequently used by Southern cooks. A glossary clarifies terminology rarely used by today's cooks. (262 pages, 8.25 x 5.25, Hardcover)
