What a yummy question headline!

Wikipedia says about Waffle Day:
"In the United States, National Waffle Day is celebrated in August to commemorate the date of a U.S. patent on a waffle iron"

So we are probably looking for the inventor of the waffle iron - Cornelius Swartwout

And indeed Wikipedia says:
"He enlisted in the Union Army in July 1861, serving with the 3rd New York Cavalry."

Great question, @Mike Serpa ! I could do with a Belgian Waffle with strawberries and cream right now!! But all I got is a mug of coffee...

Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York on August 24, 1869. was awarded a patent for an “improvement on the waffle iron” - and now for my “shameless” plug - if you ever travel to Northern New Hampshire make sure to include a stop to the place voted the best pancake/waffles in the state, “Polly’s Pancake Parlor” located in Sugar Hill, NH.
Source - wiki visually - for Swarthout
Source - me - for Polly’s
