My show and tell item was found on an exploration into the unknown corners of the Tree House. It reflects my enjoyment with exploring old houses and abandon areas in general. It is also just an intriguing item in itself and felt it was worth sharing with the class.
DRIED TOBBACO TWIST
Twist tobacco is spun and rolled into large rope-like strands and then twisted into a knot. The final product is much lower in moisture than plug or loose leaf tobacco, and historic varieties could be smoked in a pipe as well as chewed. This was the most common form of chewing tobacco in the 18th and 19th centuries.
