Everyday life in the 19th century wasn’t as rosy as many stories and films lead us to believe.  This course will take you back to the times of the pioneers, when everyone had to literally pull their weight. As the century progresses, you’ll learn what it was like to be a Confederate prisoner of war. After the war, the mad rush of progress changed the way people lived their daily lives. Finally, the railroads and trolleys brought the speed of modern times to the rural lives of many people.

Instructor: Bob Brooke has been writing about historical subjects for over 30 years. Besides publishing many articles, he has also published a book about the history of shipwrecks off the North Carolina coast entitled “Shipwrecks and Buried Treasure: The Outer Banks.”
