Seven score and 19 years ago, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed at Gettysburg that the world would little note nor long remember what  words were said by him on that Pennsylvania battlefield. 

The Civil War created many hardships for soldiers, not the least of which was not having enough good food. Men had to scrounge for food, and preparing it sometimes was a problem.

Author Darlene Funkhouser believes we can empathize with the blue and gray with a copy of Civil War Cookin', Stories 'n Such.  This illustrated book contains 129 authentic battlefield recipes., often used during combat conditions.

 Darlene Funkhouser holds degrees in Law Enforcement and Business Management, and is a former police reserve officer. In her book "Think Like a Man," she tells readers that it isn't a matter of girls learning how to think like a man because that's a better way to think. That isn't necessarily a better way to think. It's just different. Here's the kicker. If we can learn to think like a man, we'll know how to think like a man and a woman. They, however, will only know how to think like a man.
