I have an ancestor who, four decades later, claimed a Confederate pension on the basis of disability from having had to eat "pea bread" during the siege of Vicksburg. I'm a little dubious that was the true cause of whatever chronic gastrointestinal problem ailed him, but it seems to have convinced the pension board.
