What did the confeterate soldiers eat at the Chattanooga battle?

It wasn't the Confederates who were starving at Chattanooga. It was the besieged Union army, until Grant managed to find a way to get supplies across the Tennessee river. (The Cracker Line, the hungry troops called it.) Later in the war, it was the Confederates who were starving, after Sherman destroyed the rich Georgia farmland.
