Description
Did hunger defeat the Confederacy? In April 1861, Lincoln ordered a blockade of Southern ports used for the importation of food. In time, lack of provisions eroded the rebels' morale and led to desertions. In this history, the editor in chief of The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America takes a gastronomical look at the war’s outcome and legacy, finding that it transformed local markets into nationalized food suppliers, forced the development of a Northern canning industry, established Thanksgiving as a national holiday, and forged the first true national cuisine from the recipes of emancipated slaves who migrated north.
