Better known today simply as Borden’s or Eagle Brand, the name New York Condensed Milk Co. will be familiar to Civil War historians for its contract with the Union Army as the primary supplier of condensed milk. An extraordinary field ration for the 19th century foot soldier, a typical 10 ounce tin provided 1,300 calories, 28 grams each of protein and fat, and more than 200 grams of carbohydrate. Popular among the troops and on the home front for its purity, durability and economy, Borden’s patrioticEagle Brand logo soon became a commonplace home kitchen item. By 1864 Borden’s New York Condensed Milk Company condensery in Brewster, New York was processing milk from over 200 dairy farms as demand was driven by home and military use. As milk was delivered by horse and wagon to homes in populated areas, fresh condensed milk was made available from the milk delivery man who received the product in sealed bulk containers. The customer brought this jar to the wagon and it was filled by the milkman from his bulk container. Along with the patriotic EAGLE BRAND Borden logo the reusable jar bore the reminder This Glass to be Filled Even Full on its rim and the 1858 date of founding of Gail Borden’s NY Condensed Milk Company. The company name appears on the bottom of the jar. This original period jar stands 3 ½ inches high, is 3 inches wide at the mouth and remains in excellent condition. The heavy glass jar was commonly stored in the icebox in a covered outer container. An interesting history and a tough item to find!
