CRESWELL, N.C. (AP) - The role of food in the Civil War will be the subject of a program at Somerset Place State Historic Site.

The program is scheduled for Saturday at the site in Creswell and includes samples of dishes representing Northern, Southern, soldier and enslaved meals of the 1860s. David Bennett, director of the Port of Plymouth Museum, will discuss the role of food.

Food historian Pat Sawyer will demonstrate hearth cooking, and costumed interpreters will serve the samples.

Donations are welcome at the free program titled “Civil War Foodways: Munch and Lunch.”
