Not the first half of the 1860s. There was the Civil War between the Yankees and the Southerners. A lot of people were killed. Slavery was abolished after the Yankees won. The South had to rebuild their war-damaged cities from scratch. A lot of racism towards the African Americans. Invention of the Ku Klux Klan - they weren't playing games, they were out to get rid of the freed Africans.

Stay in school. That was the time of the Civil War. - 1861-65. There's no such thing as a peaceful war.

Oh, definitely. If you ever get a chance to go back to that time I highly recommend taking a leisurely stroll through the picturesque fields just to the north of Sharpsburg, Maryland. Set out at about sunup on September 17th, 1862. You'll have a lovely day.

Democrats were hysterical about a Republican President. Sound familiar?
