Food and Recipes of the Revolutionary War
Chock full of recipes with step-by-step directions for kids to follow, this series is a unique way for kids to eat their way through American history. Many modern historians think the history of mankind is not to be found solely in the decisions of rulers and battles won or lost, but in the lives of everyday people. Looking closely at the environment, economics, eating habits, and favorite foods of our American forebears teaches us volumes about their world and ours.
Kids will see both sides -- the civilian and the military -- of the Revolutionary War. History comes alive as kids make Boston baked beans, a staple food of the northern colonies. Then kids can step into the shoes of a revolutionary soldier by creating their own minute-man's beef stew.
