    CIVIL WAR RECIPE: HARDTACK (1861)

    Hardtack. A meal unto itself. Civil War hardtack was apparently still issued somewhat recently.

    Apparently it’s also one of the few ways to preserve flour.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken
