Fun Fact Friday: Civil War
Hey Sea Spray fans, happy Friday to you! As with every other Friday, we have another fun fact ready for you. This week, we're getting historical, and going back to the Civil War. Did you know that in the Union Army, washerwomen were paid more than the enlisted soldiers? With each washerwoman responsible for the cleaning and mending of clothes for 20 men, she was well compensated for her duties. In addition, she was given a tent, rations, a hatchet, and full services of the company's surgeon. Not a bad deal for a laundress serving her country! Enjoy your weekend, Sea Spray fans!
