In chapter 2, “‘Som Times I Git a Nuff and Som Times I Don’t’: Confederate Subsistence and the Evidence from the Florence Stockade (38FL2), Florence, South Carolina,” Judith A. Sichler explains how the Confederate Army's Subsistence Bureau had general provisions regarding what was to be included as rations for its soldiers—yet as the realities of supply and demand, the inadequacies of logistics, and the stress of a wartime economy took its toll, these items often had to be purchased locally, bartered for, or requisitioned, to feed the soldiers. Zooarchaeological data from the Florence Stockade provides a snapshot of what foods were available and the likely mode of supply for the items.
