New book: STARVING THE SOUTH: How the North Won the Civil War, by Andrew F. Smith
Marty Martindale

By Andrew F. Smith
Purchase from Amazon

Description:  From the first shot fired at Ft. Sumter on April 12, 1861, to the last shot fired at Appomattox, food played a crucial role in the Civil War.  The North mobilized its agricultural resources; the South did not. As  a result, the North fed its civilians and military, and still had massive amounts of food to export to Europe, while the South starved, morale tanked, desertions increased, and the Confederacy collapsed because it could neither feed its troops or civilians. Also included will be a discussion of how the Civil War created the modern American food system.

About Marty Martindale

Foodsite Magazine and Marty aim to help the cooking-challenged avoid dependence on others due to lack of cooking knowhow. We concentrate on quick breakfasts, portable lunches and “good-4-u” night meals. With readily available web translation, the magazine explains separate foods, a little of their history, their nutrition, suggested “go-withs,” serving ideas and links to foodsites with recipes.
