Re: my event with the Brooklyn Diggers last weekend, celebrating the 150 anniversary of the construction of the Monitor. The Diggers dug up this amazing image of cooking on the deck of the infamous iron clad ship.
What where they cooking? Find out.
Awesome picture, I’m sorry we missed the tasting of their recipe a few days ago, I bet it was delightful! :P
It was pretty good–for navy rations, really not too bad!
Great photo! I have a description of cooking done by steerage passengers on the way to the U.S. I don’t think I’ve uploaded that to my blog yet. I should do that. It gave me a real respect for people who braved those conditions.
I would love to see that–please give me a heads up when you post it.
