Proposal 11 – Confederate Reenactors’ Chicory Hut
Clark Park, 4300 Block of Baltimore Avenue
Fire pit to heat kettles, seats to rest weary feet, and some privacy to...
"We were sent to the "Soldiers' Retreat" -an excellent name for a very vile place. Oh, such a retreat! So soothing and
quieting! (?) Where leather pies at exorbitant prices, and chicory slop for coffee, boiled in the same kettles with
greasy pork, prevailed, causing our cake-and-pie-nurtured stomach to revolt and the filthy floors made our bodies shrink
away and shiver."
