“The book offers a breezy overview of Civil War history and is a good resource for adventurous cooks who want to learn more about period cooking techniques and foods. It is organized chronologically, from the fall of Fort Sumter in 1861 to General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox in 1865. Peacock summarizes military and political actions, punctuated by interesting anecdotes about historical characters, paragraphs about food and social history, and recipes to make at home or at the campfire, inspired by nineteenth-century cooks.”–Foreword Clarion Reviews

“It is an inviting way to introduce Civil War and nineteenth-century social history to young adults and is an excellent resource for educators looking for project ideas to help reinforce historical facts and themes.” Foreword Clarion Reviews
