“Wanted for N.C. Soldiers.” The Greensboro Patriot, September 15, 1864.  “Newspapers began publishing want advertisements, similar to this one, requesting that food be sent to soldiers from their area as a solution to the shortage. The Confederate armies needed every man who could still fight, and so civilians would send food to show support. North Carolinians were requested to send vegetables such as Irish potatoes, sauerkraut, and onions. The inclusion of soldiers’ names personalized the advertisement and added emotional appeal, encouraging the citizens in the Greensboro area to send food.”
