Where's all the food?
As you all could probably have guessed there is a food shortage in the South. Why? One reason why is because there is a drain of manpower into the army, another reason why is the Union is occupying food growing areas, and one last reason is the lack of slaves to work in the fields.
What you can do.
To all the mothers out there that are no longer to feed their family's meat more than once a week because meet has become scarce. Please do not worry this situation will be over soon hopefully but if it is not you are still able to go to the store and buy food the price you'll pay will be way more expensive than what you are used to. But whatever you do do not storm bakeries because it will solve no problems.
