“’Fresh Bread!’- Impromptu oven built by the Nineteenth Regiment, New York Volunteers, in General Banks’s division, Western Maryland. The impromptu oven which we illustrate testified to the Federal cleverness, and ministered to the wants of the brave defenders of the Union. The regiment undoubtedly contained men whose means gave them every epicurean indulgence; but we question if any French bread, fresh butter, with all the appliances of Delmonico, ever tasted so sweet as the newly baked bread they got from the primitive oven.” — Frank Leslie, 1896
