Comments: When on the move, during the Civil War era, it was very important to keep the fire going, as it could take a while to restart if it went out. In this podcast you can see how the fire is tended and how the temperature for cooking the food is managed.

Fire is dangerous Fire is VERY dangerous and hard to control and fires should never be lit in the countryside. This video is to illustrate the importance of fire and how people lived. The actions in this video should NOT be copied.
