Supplies Arrive

This Union captain is sitting on one of the many hard tack ration boxes at Aquia Landing.  Each box of hard tack weighed 50 pounds. Troops were pleased after General Hooker took over from General Burnside when bakeries where built in Stafford County.  They appreciated having fresh (soft) bread instead of hard tack.
