A soldier writing from the Potomac about his “feed,” says: “We get a substance for soup called ‘pressed vegetables.’ It looks a good deal like a big plug of ‘dog leg’ tobacco in shape and solidity, and is composed in part of potatoes, onions, beans, lettuce, garlic, parsley, parsnips, carrots, etc. I acknowledge eating two China tin plates full without any convulsions of nature, and can now speak the German language with fluency.”
