April 28th Cracker Day

Who doesn’t like a good cracker? They go with practically every food, are great for soups and dips and can serve as an emergency meal if required.  The cracker seems to have been around for nearly as long as man has been eating. Crackers, called Hardtack, was a main staple of soldiers during the Civil War in both the Federal side and the Confederate side. There are basically three types of crackers, Soda Crackers, Graham Crackers and Snack Crackers.
