Rough Riders

Phillip Eby, of Prescott, Ariz. shows off some un-roasted coffee beans that would have been part of the rations issued to the Arizona Rough Riders during their deployment. Troops were expected to roast and grind the coffee in the field if they wanted to make any to drink. The historical reenactors gave a talk at Riordan Mansion Saturday afternoon.
