No single item of food or drink meant as much to Civil War soldiers as coffee. They talked about it, wrote about it, and dreamed about it. Based on first hand Civil War accounts, this workshop explores the different methods Civil War soldiers used to obtain and brew their coffee and also discusses what soldiers used as substitutes when coffee beans became scarce. Attendees will participate in guided tours of different areas of the Fiery Trial, demonstrations of how to brew alternative Civil War coffee drinks, and a coffee tasting to finish off the morning.
