Food Shortages in the South

By: Adrian Nava

Food Shortage

As you all know the South is in a crisis. Our food supply is very low due to the war. It causing a lot of trouble including riots. It is also causing inflation almost raising the price of groceries by 10 times what it was before.

Why is this happening?

4 reasons

One of the main reasons is our men are all fighting in the war and we have no one to tend to the fields. The union is also occupying land areas where we grow our crops. We are also loosing our slaves and that decreasing the production of our food. The last reason is because the Union is blocking our trade ports causing shortages in salt, sugar, coffee , nails, needles, and medications.
