From du Pont's gunpowder and Borden's condensed milk to Procter & Gamble's soap and Brooks Brothers' uniforms, this history investigates how today's familiar brand names served a vital role for the Union during the Civil War. Rarely told stories from the companies who supplied soldiers and sailors with food, clothing, weapons, and medicine recount tales of political intrigue, family and friends torn apart, and paths crossed with Abraham Lincoln. These accounts show that life during conflict can often be as intriguing and dangerous for a company of employees as it is a company of soldiers.
