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.
