This might be as useless and phony as the continental dollar so everybody crack open the books again. I heard a little blurb indicating that military regulars in the revolutionary war could not eat chicken. The officers could have all they wanted, but the regulars had a death sentence cast over their heads for snacking on a small morsel of the dead yard bird. I guess they could have turkey or buzzard but no KFC. It might be a British thing, but either way it sounds screwy. It's hard to imagine George Washington with an army of starving men at Valley Forge trying not to think of food when a bunch of pecking hens might have been trying to keep warm with them. The nearest thing I can find was when Henry Knox swallowed a chicken bone and it caused an infection which killed him. But that was after the war. Other than that.....crickets.
