Feasting on History: Food in the Civil War

indiana_corydon_logoThe 150th anniversary of the Battle of Corydon, Indiana, will be commemorated with an event a Road Trips Foodie shouldn’t miss: a meal typical of the Civil War era.

At “Feasting on History: Food in the Civil War”, set for June 15, 2013, at the First Indiana State Office Building, guests will enjoy an 1860s style meal that soldiers and those on the home front might have eaten. The program begins at 6 p.m., but guests are encouraged to arrive early for appetizers and photos with the re-enactors.

During the dinner, Civil War re-enactors will give a presentation about the life of a Union soldier.

Author and historian Michael Peake will deliver a presentation about the Battle of Corydon. The town was the only location in Indiana where a Civil War battle took place during General Morgan’s infamous 1863 raid through Indiana and Ohio. On July 9, 1863, the Indiana Home Guard and Corydon citizens held off Morgan’s attack for nearly 30 minutes.

The program and dinner is $25 per person and reservations are required by June 12, 2013. To reserve a seat or for any questions, contact Laura Van Fossen at the Corydon Capitol State Historic Site; telephone 812:738.4890 or email [email protected]

Corydon Capitol State Historic Site is located in Harrison County in southern Indiana. Part of the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, Corydon became the Indiana Territory capitol in 1813 and Indiana’s first state capital in 1816.
