It was brought to my attention last night by my good friend Ted (tmh10) that we should have a thread on the camp cookware during the war. Its fairly easy to imagine what a soldier would have been issued but by mid war,just what exactly would a common foot soldier carry?Witch brings up another question,what type of cookware do reenactors need? I will give you a list of my cooking equipment i use at reenactments. I have 4 tin plates. 4 small tin cups,a small cooking pot with lid,last iron skillet,and a coffee pot. These items are stored in a period style wooden box under my fly.Im in an artillery unit,so camps full of wagons,big boxes and such are common. this practice may not be usefull for a foot soldier. My cooking set is not exactly authentic,but it does the job. The pot,coffee pot ,tin plates and cups look authentic,but the skillet is a modern one,but its a black cast iron one,so you would never know. Now i also carry a tin cup with a small piece of rope tied to the handel and i keep it looped over my cap box.I also keep my canteen on me annd i have a tin stamped spoon and fork from dixie gun works in my haversack. I use my pocket knife to cut my food. Thats another thing you need to have if you reenact, guys. A good sharp pocket knife, Smokey mountain knife works have cheep period knifes. And they hold up unlike the elchepos most sutlers are selling for a few bucks. What cooking wares do you use in camp?
