Civil War Recipes: Receipts from the Pages of Godey's Lady's Book
FROM THE PUBLISHER - Godey's Lady's Book, perhaps the most popular
magazine for women in nineteenth-century America, had a national circulation of
150,000 during the 1860s. The recipes (receipts) it published were often
submitted by women from both the North and the South, and they reveal the wide
variety of regional cooking that characterized American culture.
There is a remarkable diversity in the recipes, thanks to the largely rural
readership of Godey's Lady's Book and to the immigrant influence on the country
in the 1860s. Fish and game were readily available in rural America, and the
number of seafood recipes testifies to the abundance of the coastal waters and
The country cook was a frugal cook, particularly during wartime, so there are a
great many recipes for leftovers and seasonal produce. In addition to a wide
sampling of recipes that can be used today, Civil War Recipes includes
information on Union and Confederate army rations, cooking on both home fronts,
and substitutions used during the war by southern cooks.
