Trivia Question: What is the name of cracker-like dry biscuit made of simply water and flour that was a common ration among militaries from around the 17th Century until the 20th Century?
Hardtack provided valuable carbohydrates to give energy to soldiers. What’s more, it was cheap and easy to produce en masse. It also lasted a long time without expiring.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
