Year In Review: Civil War Cookin’

Year in Review-Header

It was just a 7 day, short, almost-silly blog post series, but it was sure fun to write and publish. And it was well received by readers! “Civil War Cookin’ ” guaranteed a new article every day of Thanksgiving Week (2016).

Exploring different foods (beyond the standard hardtack and coffee), recipes, and culinary stories from the Civil War era, the series opened a new, lighter genre of articles on ECW – an attempt to reach to a new audience of history buffs who want different topics than battles and campaigns. Don’t worry battles, campaigns, leadership, etc. etc. still remain the core focus of ECW, but we are seeking some opportunities to occasionally share other Civil War history topics and writing angles.
