Back in the 1840s mainly boys would play baseball for fun and entertainment. They would play after school in their free time. Baseball was never really meant for girls because girls would be inside cooking or cleaning or making quilts.
Boys used to go hunting a lot. While us girls are stuck inside making blankets they go outside killing weasels with slingshots using rocks as ammo. They would go and wander around with their slingshots ready in hand. If they come across a fat wren or opossum they would arm their slingshot with a nearby rock or a marble they brought and kill with the force of the rock/marble hitting it in the side of the head or the ribs possibly in the eye.

Mainly boys would do fishing because boys would probably not let them anyway because girls weren't really meant for fishing.I don't know why but girls wouldn't be able to fish their life was pretty boring if you were a girl.

I think girls would mainly sew because girls would be stuck inside while boys would play outside.Even worse was that the girls had to do it by hand because there were no sewing machines.
Life wasn't the most exciting for us girls, but at least we had some things to do. We would make quilts to pass the time. It would take us days, weeks, maybe even months depending on how nice we wanted it to look. We would sew on little squares with designs on them together and eventually make a beautiful quilt to snuggle in at night or to relax in the day.
