Transcript of Life in the 1800's

By Katie Jones
Period 9 Life in the 1800's Foods Today a lot of people eat out. People in the 1800's couldn't do that. The only time they ate out at a restaurant, is when the family was traveling. Families ate at home from food that was made from scratch. Everyone in the house ate together. (http://ncpedia.org/culture/food/cooking-in-the-1800s) When the people in the 1800's ate, it was in the early afternoon and called Dinner. Supper, to them, was a little snack in the evening. (http://ncpedia.org/culture/food/cooking-in-the-1800s) Most Americans ate pork, bacon, and other meats. Corn was a big crop that many people ate too. (http://www.historycentral.com/NN/America/food.html) Games Children in the 1800s played some of the same board games we do today. For example, they played chess, checkers, the game of goose, and etc. (http://www.boardgamestudies.info/pdf/issue2/BGS2Whitehill.pdf) Most boys normally played baseball. Baseball bats were carved out of old pieces of wood that the kids could find or bats they had gotten for gifts. (http://ezinearticles.com/?History-of-Baseball-Bats&id=303204) Rugby was also played a lot in the United States during the 1800s. It was very popular for boys and sometimes girls even joined in. (http://www.sportsknownhow.com/rugby/history/rugby-history-3.shtml) These girls are playing a game. (content.lib.washington.edu) This is what a normal kitchen in the 1800s would look like. (ncpedia.org) Clothing Ladies and girls, had to wear dresses as proper clothing. (http://www.19th-century-us-history.com/19th-century_clothing_f.shtml) Men and boys had to wear button up shirts as proper clothing in the 1800s. (http://www.19th-century-us-history.com/19th-century_clothing_f.shtml) Wool for clothing was made with the process of shearing it, cleaning it, spinning it into thread, and using the thread to make fabric. If a family didn't want to do that, the "traveling weaver" would sew clothing for the family. (http://articles.southbendtribune.com/2008-01-10/news/26883352_1_wool-clothes-yarn) This is what women would wear. (answers.google.com) This is what men would wear. (cedarlounge.wordpress.com) Music The most popular types of music were religious, traditional English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh Folk. (http://music.lovetoknow.com/musicians-from-early-1800s) During the 1800s there was a time called the Early Romantic Era. This was when songwriters decided to stop making perfect music pieces and start expressing their feelings through music. (http://www.getintoclassical.com/guide-to-the-eras/early-romantic-era-1800-1850/) Families would listen to music at their homes by Tinfoil Phonographs. If families didn't have those, a lot of times the place they heard music from was at their churches. (http://edison.rutgers.edu/tinfoil.htm) Transportation As vehicles, families used covered wagons, horses, and buggies. (http://www.northwesthistoryexpress.com/timeline/transportation1800.php) If families lived in the city and didn't own buggies, horses, etc., they would ride on the public horse drawn omnibus. (http://www.trolleystop.com/omnibus.htm) A price today for a horse drawn buggy would be $1,500. (http://agonline.com/swmann/cardetail.asp?ID=145) This is what a horse drawn omnibus would look like. (archives.upenn.edu) This is a tinfoil phonograph. (cylinders.library.ucsb.edu) This is a video of Yankee Doodle Dandy which is one of the songs that people sang in the 1800s. There weren't McDonalds like we have today that they could just go and buy their food. (blog.wakeforesthomes.com) Corn! (scientificamerican.com) Chickens!
