Names of Soldiers Families Supplied with Salt - dated July 21 1863
Under the Order of Governor
Salt was essential to a family's survivial.  It was used not only for curing meat, but for many other household tasks as well. Most salt at this time was imported from Europe, but due to the war blockade, it became increasingly scarce and expensive. Georgia Governor Joseph E. Brown devised a plan to donate one-half bushel to widows of soldiers and to those who had lost a son in service. One-half of a bushel could be sold for one dollar to each family of a soldier. This list shows Madison County families who were supplied with salt in 1863.  Notes in italics were added by the contributor, Charlotte Collins Bond.
