Army Hardtack Biscuit
Army Hard-tack biscuit on which is written in pencil: "ENGINEERS CAMP- SEYMOUR. APRIL 2ND TO 25TH 1917."
Army hard tack biscuits were so hard and durable that they were often written upon, and sent as letters or momentos to loved ones. Unfortunately the owner of this biscuit did not record his name.
