    Tobacco Twist - Inventory Number: CAM 093 / SOLD

    Tobacco was an enormously important sutler ware, as many soldiers felt they could not do without it.  Chewing tobacco was popular, and many soldiers developed a dependency upon it.  It was easy to carry and could be enjoyed no matter what the soldier was doing: marching, standing guard, or camping in the rain.  These "pigtail" curls or "twist" could be chewed or smoked.  This large example is from the Kentucky Museum and is approximately 11" x 5".
