A collection of the sugars and sweets soldiers and sailors ate in the Revolutionary War - from the government, packages from home, sutlers tents and bum boats, and foraging. A tag on the box contains an historic illustration on one side and the story of each item on the back. Let us not forget that, while the Continental Army was hungry - at times starving - the British had it worse. And that is only one reason why the Revolutionaries won the war. Comes in a reusable box.
