panada Also known as bully soup, this gruel of cornmeal, army crackers mashed in boiling water, ginger, and wine or medicinal whiskey was usually administered in hospitals. Some say it first appeared during the Mexican War, and others claim it was concocted by Eliza Harris of the U.S. Sanitary Commission. Mary Anne "Mother" Bickerdyke was known to dispense it to her patients.
