Fort Warren-Georges Island

— Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area —

The rank and financial status of Ft. Warren residents determined the quality of meal they ate. Rations for Union soldiers consisted of fresh beef with potatoes three times a week, salt beef, pork or ham three times a week, and baked beans on Sunday. Confederate soldier prisoners ate the same rations, but cooked their meals in large pots outside their rooms instead of eating in the mess halls. Southern political prisoners and officers who could afford it made outside arrangements with Boston caterers. The "North Carolina Mess," composed of prisoners for Cape Hatteras, purchased extras such as cheese and crackers, sausages and cakes for 16 cents a day..
