Civil War Recipe ~ Union Hardtack

Civil War Recipe ~ Union Hardtack

The Commissary Department had responsibilities.  Their duty was to buy, store, and delivery food to the soldiers.  It wasn’t the easiest job, yet the North did have an advantage over their counterpart, South, as they already had a commissary established prior to the onset of the Civil War.  Even with the advantage, both sides faced difficulties with supply and demand.  One was the inability to preserve food (like we do today), and the other was delivery time.
