Civil War Cooking
Cooking up Bangor’s past…today!
In December 1864 members of the Bangor Sanitary Commission held a fair
raising funds to support Maine troops on the Civil War battlefields.
One commission member recorded the recipes sold at the fair. Her small,
nondescript book was all but forgotten and 103 years later donated anonymously
to the Bangor Historical Society.
Updated (and taste-tested!) to reflect ingredients available today, that rare
culinary treasure from the Museum collections is available to you!
$15.00 includes a commemorative museum wooden spoon.
Ships in USPS flat rate envelope.
