From "A Promise Moon," Chapter 18, page 191:

            Some of the men complained about the rations, calling the canned meat, "embalmed beef" or "salt horse." The soldiers criticized the cook for serving biscuits that had more weevils than flour and badmouthed his lumpy gravy made from "condemned milk."

            Joe peeled the crust off his biscuits since most of the insects rose to the top during baking. "A hungry manís a fool if he complain about what heís eating."

A research grant to study slavery and the Underground Railroad in Kentucky inspired, "A Promise Moon." I alluded to, or drew inspiration from my findings as I wrote my latest novel which is set during the Civil War.
