Mince Pie, Civil War.

Here is aa short that comes out of the 14th., North Carolina Infantry.
Mince Pie.  

''Two boys came into camp one day selling" mince pies. Two soldiers bought one, ate, smacked their lips, pronouncing: it's good and wished for more.  Before the boys got out of hearing they got into a dispute about the division of the money. The smaller boy cried and said it was his puppy that was killed to furnish material for the pie and he was entitled to his part of the proceeds. The soldier boys would have been glad to have parted with the puppy dog, but it had come to stay.
