Period Piece

I’m trying my hand at writing a story set in the mid 19th century (pre Civil War). It’s inspired by a historical figure so I felt that it was important to set the story in the same era. I’m really only relying on the period to impart a certain technological level and vague political climate so it’s not relying on as much research as something more deeply historical. Still I have a nice little folder of bookmarks to look at if I need a reference.
