    Yes, if you were living in the middle of nowhere at Oregon

    If you were living at Washington DC or New York,

    NOPE

    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.

    Sure, except for that little issue of the Civil War

    The US war against the American Indians was continuing and they were slowly being defeated.

    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?
